Ciró Classico Superiore DOC (2015), A' Vita – Calabria
Grape : Gaglioppo.
Here is a wine with a distinct, alluring character that dates back to antiquity. Sensational 100% indigenous grape Gaglioppo from the southern part of Italy and coming from two different vineyards. A husband and wife estate with a mere 8 hectares in the heart of the Cirò DOC. Serious, grippy tannins that will remind you of the Nebbiolo grape. Delightful aromas, flavors of cranberry, red cherry, flowers, and ocean mineral. A true hidden gem.
