The "armacia" is the typical dry stones wall that forms the terraces of Costa Viola, in Calabria, where for centuries the so-called "heroic viticulture" has been practiced on steep slopes overhanging the sea. Armacìa by Enopolis Costa Viola Cooperative and Criserà winery represents "the wine of the Costa Viola terracing" and it has been listed among the Italian Extreme Wines certified by CERVIM of Aosta (Research and Studies Center for the enhancement of mountain viticulture). Armacìa is a red wine obtained from a blend of native grapes of Prunesta, Malvasia Nera, Nerello Calabrese, Gaglioppo and it is born thanks to a local development project, aimed at safeguarding the fragile and typical vine-terraced landscape of Costa Viola, through the recovery of steeply sloping viticulture. Cold maceration, soft pressing, bottle aging.


Armacìa is a niche wine, greatly appreciated not only for its organoleptic characteristics, but also for its social and environmental function. It has an intense ruby ​​red colour, tending to garnet. On the nose, intense spicy notes stand out, followed gradually by red fruits aromas tending to dry red fruit. In the mouth it is optimally balanced, thanks to an excellent balance between tannins and alcohol, which determine an ideal and uncommon harmony, capable of evolving over time. On the finish it is sapid, mineral and well-structure. We suggest serving it fresh, at a temperature of 14-15 °C.


Armacìa Costa Viola IGT pairs perfectly with simple dishes based on meat and aged cheese. It is an excellent wine for the whole meal, ideal also as red wine for fish.
