Greco Bianco - Ciro Bianco Segno - Librandì - Calabria - Italy
The Librandi Cirò Bianco Segno is made from 100% Greco Bianco, a white grape variety brought to Calabria by the ancient Greeks. Beautiful aromas of peach, melon and honeysuckle hold much allure and the crisp, dry, mineral character in the mouth brings the exciting stone fruit and Mediterranean herbal flavours into bright focus.
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.
