    • "Magno Megonio" Rosso Val di Neto IGT 2016

      “Magno Megonio” Rosso Val di Neto IGT 2016

      For lovers of autochthonous wines: notes of mulberry and pepper on the nose, compact, balanced on the palate, well balanced acidity and tannin, long with aromas of ripe raspberries and honey. A seductively elegant wine from the Magliocco grape. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine from Librandi is one of the bottles that put Calabria on the world wine map. A pure expression of the Magliocco grape, the 2016 Magno Megonio shows the dark color intensity and rich textural fiber that is characteristic of this indigenous grape. The wine ages in barrique for 12 months. This adds a frame of spice and cinnamon that surrounds a core of bold blackberry fruit." Robert Parker

    • "Gravello" Rosso Val di Neto IGT 2016

      “Gravello” Rosso Val di Neto IGT 2016

      Concentrated and excellently structured, Gravello 2016 demonstrates true greatness with its complexity. In the nose ripe, red fruits and spicy notes, combined with balsamic tones. Dense, full of substance and tannin on the palate with an extremely elegant final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Pretty nose of oak, marasca cherry and cassis and with a peppery edge. Hints of damson. Quite concentrated and deep with dry oak notes and lots of powdery tannins that are a little drying right now. Creamy notes and quite gripping on the finish, but this needs at least another year or so to come round." Jancis Robinson

      "This is the top-shelf red blend from Calabria's Librandi. The 2016 Gravello is a blend of 60% Gaglioppo and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in barrique for 12 months. Since the last time I tasted this wine (a few years back), I found this vintage to be nicely focused and sharp with dark fruit intensity. This is a mid- to full-bodied red wine with firm tannins and a touch of cherry sourness or bitterness on the close." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Librandi | Kalabrien
    Calabria
    Librandi | Kalabrien

    For a long time, talking about Calabria's viticulture meant talking about a single winery: Librandi. But in the meantime there are more and more thoroughly working winegrowers, who produce high quality wines typical for the region and rely above all on antique native grape varieties. We can thank Nicodemo Librandi for this. He revived the most important of these grape varieties - such as Gaglioppo, Magliocco and Mantonica - and as a pioneer showed other winegrowers the high quality of these grapes. The beautiful Librandi winery, situated in Ciró Marina near the Punta Alice holiday resort on the Ionian coast, has been family-owned for four generations and is now managed by Teresa and Francesco and their cousins Paolo and Raffaele after the early death of its founder Tonino Librandi. The combination of mild Mediterranean temperatures and a strong breeze from the mountains creates a microclimate that gives the wines of the Winzerquartett unique notes, aromas and fragrances.

    In the wine house, which has been converted into a large modern agricultural enterprise with a lot of money and time spent, great importance is attached to a harmonious balance between tradition and innovation. Numerous awards attest to the success achieved with this philosophy by the pearl of Calabria's viticulture, which has become a fixed benchmark for the winegrowers of southern Italy. In the municipalities of Cirò and the neighbouring villages of Strongoli, Casabona and Rocca di Neto, and in Cirò Marina, but also in the vineyards of Crucoli and Melissa in the province of Messina, many autochthonous varieties that are almost extinct thrive under the careful care of the agronomist Davide De Santis. The grapes are then vinified in the cellar under the expert supervision of Donato Lanati, professor of oenology in Turin and Florence, to produce reliable, original and elegant creations. The most important wines of the wide range are still produced from the local Gaglioppo vine.

    Librandi runs several experimental vineyards in which ancient Calabrian grape varieties are cultivated. In order to produce fine wines with the authentic character of their terroir, the best clones have been carefully selected by the family under the leadership of Nicodemo and Tonino. In addition, the two wine enthusiasts patiently carried out microvinifications and meticulously evaluated them. Fashion trends and methods leading to rapid success, on the other hand, were completely disregarded in their research activities. SUPERIORE.DE
