  4. Duca San Felice Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore Riserva DOC

Duca San Felice is the name of the oldest vineyard owned by the Librandi family and the last one planted by Raffaele Librandi, the father of Antonio and Nicodemo.  This vineyard is situated in the heart of the Ponta territory, which is considered one of the oldest and most important crus of the classic Cirò area.  It is made entirely from Gaglioppo, a key indigenous variety that is thought to have been introduced from Greece to southern Italy.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color, this wine offers rich aromas of figs, sour cherries, and tobacco with hints of chocolate. On the palate, this wine is substantial and well-structured with tannins that hint at ageworthiness and a long spicy finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted meats, Espagnole sauces, veal saltimbocca, and gyros.
