“Mastrogiurato” Calabria IGT Rosso 2016, Caparra & Siciliani
Mastrogiurato was the feudal official with jurisdictional and tributary powers. In the feudal lands, fairs and festivals were organised by the Mastrogiurato, the royal flag, gentlemen and people on horse and foot. At the end of the day a competition would be organised in religious s in which oya would be hoisted, followed by back on which competitors would fire at a target; three paliis of silk cloth were exhibited as the prizes. Finally, in the evening, the flag was carried around the city, among cries of jubilation, and then kept in the castle.
