CIRÒ Classico Superiore Riserva DOC, A' Vita (2014) - Calabria
Grape : Gaglioppo.
Sensational 100% Gaglioppo from the southern part of Italy and coming from two 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.
Food pairing : Rich and robust meat dishes such as beef stews. Braised dishes such as Oxtail, Osso Bucco or Lamb Shanks.
