The locality from which the cellar takes its name is called "Masicei", a natural context where the Saracena tower "a Marrana" and Stromboli paint a suggestive panorama. The vineyards look over Capo Vaticano and Tropea from the terraces at the foot of the hill, places which since ancient times have always been suited for the cultivation of vines and the production of excellent wines, thanks to the excellent soil and climatic conditions: the sun, the mild climate and the breeze of the sea that caress the grapes and shape their composition, generating unique scents in the wine.
It is possible to visit the cellar with a tour:
Casa Comerci is a winery in Badia di Nicotera (VV), under Monte Poro, in the wine-growing heart of Calabria.
A highly suitable area that enjoys extraordinary temperature ranges and a constant sea breeze that cradles the vineyards overlooking the sea. Today it is due to a woman if the canine magliocco has been cultivated in this area since the end of the 1800s: Rosina Comerci. Thanks to her, Badia was renowned for the production of blended grapes. Today this autochthonous vine can be admired in its maximum character expression. In fact, from it comes a decisive, vibrant, engaging red, rich in extract, capable of giving ready-to-drink wines or, for those who know how to wait, large bottles to drink after years of aging such as the Batia reserve.
