  4. Cirò Bianco DOC

This wine is made from 100% Greco Bianco, a white variety brought to Calabria by the ancient Greeks. After a soft pressing, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness. Refined briefly in tanks and bottle for a few months for extra finesse, Cirò Bianco is ready to be enjoyed upon release.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant lemon-green in color, aromas of peaches and citrus fruits complement undertones of herbs and flowers. On the palate, zesty acidity and a long finish showcase this wine's subtle hints of toasted almonds and macadamia nuts.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with ceviche, gremolata sauces, grilled swordfish, or Sicilian involtini.
