The San Salvatore Calpazio Greco appears a straw yellow color with hints of green in the glass. Notes of yellow peach, apricot, grapefruit, bergamot, quince, ginger, white flowers and Asian spices fill the nose. The wine is dry and balanced on the palate with a long, pleasing finish.
San Salvatore is located in the heart of the Cilento National Park, near Paestum, Stio and Giungano, in the Campania region of southern Italy. With 149 hectares devoted to organically-farmed agriculture, including vineyards, olive groves, and crops that support their 550-head of water buffalo, San Salvatore has quickly become one of Italy's most environmentally-concious azienda agricolas.
