Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore Riserva

2014

The Riserva is 100% Gaglioppo from the vineyard Muzzunetto, the oldest vines of the estate, planted in 1968, facing north. The grapes were harvested in the first week of October at 50hl/ha.  Fermentation was spontaneous with an extended maceration of one month, after which the free-run juice is drained (not pressed). Aged one year in a 2000L Slavonian oak botte.  It undergoes a wide filtration and is then bottled-aged until four years after the harvest.  3,000 bottles made. 

90 points
"A firm, medium-bodied red, with a core of dense tannins tightly knit to a creamy blend of plumped cherry, Earl Grey tea, sandalwood and spice flavors. Best from 2021 through 2026. 275 cases made, 60 cases imported"
