Gravello Val di Neto Rosso Librandi
Gravello Val di Neto Rosso Librandi - 'A subtle, medium-bodied red, with well-knit, plush tannins, featuring baked cherry and mulberry fruit flavours accented by dried mint, smoke and citrus peel notes. Gaglioppo and Cabernet Sauvignon'.Wine Spectator
This wine was created in the late 80s from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Gaglioppo. It immediately became one of the company's premier wines and a symbol of Calabria, which was just beginning to open up to the international market.
Calabria remains one of Italy’s least developed regions, famed for its wild, natural beauty, and it is only relatively recently that modern winemaking techniques have been adopted. In the 1950s that Raffaele Librandi and his two sons, Antonio and Nicodemo, took the decision to take their family vineyards, located in the town of Cirò Marina, on a march towards modernity.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that Librandi have been the catalyst behind Calabria’s resurgence. Today, the winery remains in the hands of the Librandi family, with Nicodemo at the head. He is ably assisted by his sons Raffaele and Paolo and his nephew and niece Francesco and Teresa.
