Cirò Rosso Segno, Librandi
Grape 100% Gaglioppo
Calabria remains one of Italy’s least developed regions and it is only relatively recently that modern winemaking techniques have been adopted. Librandi are a notable exception to this and it was back in the 1950s that Raffaele Librandi and his two sons, Antonio and Nicodemo, took the decision to take their family vineyards on a march towards modernity. Since then they have not been afraid to incorporate external influences and employ the assistance of international experts, without ever losing sight of what makes their wines distinctively Calabrian. This approach has seen them become the benchmark for the region.
The grapes come from vineyards planted on the limestone and clayloam soils of Cirò and Cirò Marina. The grapes were picked by hand in
late September and early October.
The grapes were gently pressed and macerated on their skins both before and during fermentation, which took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation and was bottled unoaked.
An incredibly approachable expression of this variety, with well-rounded tannins, bright red berry fruit, with notes of Mediterranean herbs on the fresh and lifted finish.
