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

Labrandi has grown grapes for four generations and in the 50s began botling as well. Read less
