Don Raffaele

Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore
Riserva D.O.P.

 

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
