Recipient of Italy's coveted "Tre Bicchieri", or 3 Glasses award.
San Calisto is Valle Reale's flagship wine. This muscular yet refined wine is made from 100% Montepulciano grown in the San Calisto parcel, the oldest plot in the Valle Reale estate. Located within one of Italy's most beautiful national parks, and surrounded by the Gran Sasso mountain range. This unique vineyard benefits from the high elevation, a wide diurnal temperature range, lots of cool, breezy ventilation and limestone rich soils.
Deep, ruby-red in color, San Calisto offers layered aromas of ripe blackberries and crushed black cherries, followed by spicy notes of cassis, leather and dried herbs. Its excellent structure is perfectly complimented by a silky, rich mouthfeel and a long, persistent finish. San Calisto is excellent with sharp cheeses, barbecued ribs, lamb, filet mignon or steak au poivre.
