More about this wine
Cirò is a DOC wine with a long and ancient history, dating back no less than to Greek and Byzantine times. Cataldo Calabretta and his sisters Maria and Michela produce this wine with attention to tradition and recovery of ancient winemaking techniques: it comes from 100% Gaglioppo grapes, organically grown in the family estate, hand-harvested and then fermented with indigenous yeasts. This wine is then aged 10 months in cement, then at least 7 months in the bottle. The result is a full and meaty wine boasting a wide depth of aromas: the best match for your red meat dishes and sauces.
