Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore
This wine arises from an old vine variety in the heart of the Cirò territory, the “Gaglioppo”, in the old hillside vineyards with a low
yield from each vine. A wine authority and prestige of Baron Raffaele, an expert with the pen and the law who lived mindful of the weaks
and fought widely for his country.
Grape: 100% Gaglioppo
Total alcohol: 14% by volume
Production technique: the grapes are allowed to mature on the hillside until the second half of October, then they are subject to a lengthy steeping followed by ageing in steel barrels for at least three years.
Features: smooth, burgundy-coloured red wine, with dark ruby reflections. The taste is full-bodied, persistent, with a winning softness and with sensations of great flavour. This is a wine for “the few”, produced in limited quantities and available in strictly numbered bottles.
Serving suggestions: particularly suitable with elaborate first courses, game, typical seasoned spicy cheeses and truffle-based dishes.
Ideal service temperature: 16/18 °C
