Scala Ciro Rosso Classico Superiore 100% Gaglioppo Red Wine of Calabria, Italy
Be charmed and seduced by its unique, smoky amaro and camphor-inflected red and black fruit flavors. the wine is concentrated with flavors of blackberry and blueberry plum, cherry and herbal spice, with a distinctive purple flower overtone. ripe tannins and distinctive, full flavors make this hearty yet easy-to-drink red taste far more expensive than one might expect from the modest price.
This wine is made from 100% gaglioppo, a medium-sized, thick-skinned grape indigenous to southern italy and best known for the production of cirò doc. the grapes come from a vineyard called “franza”, in the municipality of contrada franza. the ownership of the land goes back to the 17th century, and was previously cultivated with olive trees and citrus groves, only becoming a vineyard in 1965.
