IVDC Wines is thrilled to introduce and dazzle American palates with the romance, rich history and sublime notes of the ancient and exclusive grapes found only in the mountainous vineyards of Cirò, CALABRIA— Italy’s best kept secret. Wine connoisseurs will fall in love with the wines produced from the ancient vines of Calabria, Italy’s untapped jewel — and IVDC Wines, which is an acronym for I Vini Della Calabria, is the sole importer and distributor of this region’s hand-crafted and elegant vintages throughout Southern California.
IVDC Wines has four primary vintner partners who own and run award-winning, generations-old wineries along Eastern Calabria's Ionian Sea. The unique microclimate of this region, which has nurtured the development of thousands of native varietals and indigenous vines, has led many wine researchers to nickname Calabria the "Galapagos of the Wine World." We are proud to offer fourteen distinct Calabria wines - white, rosé, red, and sparkling - for any palate or any occasion.
For the first time ever, our Calabria wines can now be purchased in Southern California, with an ever-expanding list of vendors throughout the entire region. We will update this section frequently to keep our valued customers and wine lovers updated on where they can buy our wine, including wine specialty stores, high-end grocers, retailers, restaurants, hotels and more.
“This wine is so lovely! You should have seen them fight over the leftover Donna Giovanna!” - Irina Ponomarenko, Vice President of the North American Sommelier Association. “Everyone commented how delicious these [wines] are!”
#98 Tenuta Iuzzolini Ciro Rosso Classico 2016: "Ripe red cherry, clove, cardamom and black pepper make for an inviting nose. The palate is juicy in feel, with balanced acidity, medium-grained tannins and a gentle woodsy spice tone. Score 88."
Tenuta Iuzzolini Ciro Rosato 2017: "A pale garnet color, this juicy rosé layers light, chalky tannins and a subtle, herbal overtone over flavors of macerated cherry and singed orange peel. Bring on the salumi. Drink now. 12,500 cases made, 100 cases imported. Score 88."
