CALMA Wines is outcome of the idea of three young entrepreneurs with a hospitality background a big passion for the wines.
Their vision is become the connection ring for the medium / small wineries that are not present, or just partially, on the international market and the buyers around the world.
They want to give the opportunity to those wine producers who want to export their products in other countries like Australia, where they know there is a full range of customers that would love to try their goodies! They think that nowadays the good part of being a smaller producer is the key to create an unique product that everyone should try. CALMA is born from the union of entrepreneur minds: Carlo, Alberto e Marco.
However what actually inspired them to pick this name is the meaning of the word calma in Italian (eng. Calm). Calma is one of the best adjectives when you produce or simply think about wine.
Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.
Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
