2009 San Francesco Cirò Rosso Classico

SKU #1070337

Gaglioppo is the most important Calabrian grape variety, and if you are as yet uninitiated into the world of Calabrian wines, this is a great place to start exploring. This Gaglioppo-based red is a traditional, strapping, rustic wine with an intense and persistent bouquet of exotic spice and deep, dark fruit. Dry, warm and firmly tannic, it is well-balanced and made for large-scale cuisine like lamb chops with green olives and spicy red pepper. Yum!

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
