Librandi Cirò Duca Sanfelice Riserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a red wine from Calabria (yes, Calabria!) made entirely from the unusual indigenous Gaglioppo (gah yhee oh’ poh) grape. However, don’t let that dissuade you. This is a super red wine that regularly wins awards from top Italian wine guides such as Gambero Rosso (see Gambero Rosso awards for 2010). The ’07 Duca San Felice Riserva is medium to full-bodied with explosive fruit flavors, good tannic structure and a long finish. This is a serious wine that should satisfy any discerning wine drinker’s needs for complexity and flavor.www.winewordswisdom.com

A weighty roseacute;, featuring firm, spicy black cherry notes backed by hints of game and wild herb in the finish. Gaglioppo. Drink now.

A bit of an odd duck in the world of roseacute;, the Librandi Rosato is made from 100% Gaglioppo, a robust native grape, and is darker in color than one would expect. Dark, heavy roseacute;s allow Italian wine-drinkers to chill a wine that is almost red, to help alleviate the summer heat. Great with appetizers, salads, and donrsquo;t forget dessert mdash; try it with vanilla ice cream or cheesecake.

Herersquo;s a well structured and creamy roseacute; from Calabria, southern Italy, that opens with a bright pink color and enticing aromas of raspberry and cranberry jelly. Thanks to that extra density, you could pair this wine with roast chicken or pork chops.

Winemaker Notes - Librandi is located in Ciro Marina, a small town in the southern Italian region of Calabria (Italy s boot tip), on the splendid Ionian coastline. This wine is made from 100% Greco Bianco, a white varietal brought to Calabria by the ancient Greeks.
