The Librandi winery works with 230 hectares of vineyards around the Ciro' region on the south coast of Calabria. Although the company was founded in 1950, the family has been working with wine for centuries, steeped in a love of tradition. At the same time, the Librandi brothers are acutely aware of the benefits of technology and work closely with consultants and academics studying local varieties, clones and vineyard density. Their concentric vineyard, which looks like an alien crop circle, is just one example of this. The wines reflect the philosophy, with modern, clean, pure fruit, melded together with distinct local character.
The Ciro Rosso is made from 100% Gaglippo grapes. Leather, cherry and violets dominate the nose. Rich middle mouth, with fresh acidity and tannins, good fruit and spice. A wonderful medium-bodied texture combines with superfine tannins. Finishes elegantly with nice fruit expression. Can be matched with, broiled swordfish with tomatoes, anchovies, and garlic, fried fish with Moroccan-style herb sauce, grilled apple-and herb-marinated pork chops and potatoes or beef tenderloin steaks with port-rosemary sauce.
