Italy View map

The Librandi winery is headquartered in Cirò Marina. This small Calabrian town is on the Ionian coast, near the Punta Alice promontory, south of the Gulf of Taranto. This area is naturally suited to wine growing: the soil is predisposed for vines and its happy geographic position, close to the sea with the Sila Mountains at its back, is such that it guarantees an excellent contrast between day-and-night time temperatures. Labrandi has grown grapes for four generations and in the 50s began botling as well.

  • I too have had the Duca San Felice, but I myself was not a fan. Fell flat for ... and his take was that while Librandi is by far the easiest Calabrian producer to locate in the states, there are far better to be found.  He did also suggest looking to outside the Ciro DOC which allows more blending (which can tame the somewhat bitter Gaglioppo)...

  • I've had the Duca San Felice from Librandi, by Ciro.  Good stuff.  A local restaurant, A Cote, has it on the list and I first tasted it there in a flight of Calabrian wines.  I noticed some licorice notes in the wine.  The restaurant is not carrying it now, but I've seen it at my local wine shop here in Oakland.  Alas, that helps you not at all ...

    Snoothrank:

    100% Gaglioppo8g/l Residual Sugar5.3 g/ Acidy3.2 PHA bit leathery and meaty on the nose with sweet, candied raspberry fruit that has an almost earthy, fresh mushrooms edge to it. Noticeably sweet one entry, this also is fairly tannic making it an oddball of a rose. The fruit is simple with plummy and red cherry flavors but there is not much nuan... Read More

    Wine review by Barberolo


  • Librandi Efeso Val di Neto IGT 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Showing a touch of wood on the nose, this displays attractive aromas of lemon, prosciutto, sage, lemongrass and a hint of hickory. A bit of sweetness up front doesnt detract from the voluptuous, extremely attractive mouthfeel of this. This really caresses the mouth with gossamer richness. Its got some attractive flavors as well, kind of subtle ... Read More

  • Librandi Cirò Bianco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely nose full of apple fruit topped with notes of hawthorn, cream and light floral notes. Light and crisp in the mouth yet with lovely intensity of yellow apple fruit up front and flavors that allude to sweetness. This is round, yet not soft with fairly intense fruit flavors draped over a lean framework that powers through on the finish deli... Read More
