Even in today’s Lonely Planet age of modern travel, the stunning Calabria region of southern Italy remains relatively untouched – visually beautiful, but an historically poor area where infrastructure and tourist facilities are (many would say thankfully) still rather lacking.

The Librandi family have been vineyard owners here for centuries, combining a distinctly contemporary approach to winemaking with a desire to preserve the viticultural heritage of the Cirò coastal region in which they are based.

Work with academics and consultants, most notably acclaimed viticultural expert Professor Attilio Scienza, is aimed at recovering and understanding ancient grape varieties which are, in many cases, the legacy of centuries dominated by Greek culture. You can taste the results in a range of wines that expresses the distinct character of varietals such as Greco and Gaglioppo, sourced from 230 hectares of Librandi vineyards, through fresh, clean, modern winemaking.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 2011 Cirò Classico Riserva, Duca San Felice, Librandi

    Beautiful ruby red colour with an evident orange edge to it, and a rich bouquet of spice and liquorice with a hint of tar. Medium bodied and well defined, expressing black fruit flavours alongside well integrated tannin and a dry finish.

  2. 2011 Gravello Rosso, Librandi

    Gravello is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Gaglioppo, it was the first red from Calabria to win the coveted Tre Bicchieri award from Gambero Rosso. It is deep red in colour, with a powerful perfume of cedar and cassis. The palate is extremely rich and complex with blackcurrant and blackberry fruits married to tobacco, spice and great concentration. The tannins provide great structure to the wine but are supple and ripe.
