Old Calabria is number one on my personal travel books top list, wrote by that British genius who was Norman Douglas. Now this is the optimum wine to pair with such a reading: rarity, daring, intensity... only to mention few of the features we'got stated in here. Name of the wine's: 'A Vita - La Vite, The Vine in Calabrian dialect in harmony with The Life/La Vita as well - it focuses from the start the insane complexity and discloses the fleeing of the whole subject in itself! Salute e lunga Vita, thou good Old Cirò!

Fun. Good fruit, high tannin. Showing oxidation in the color. It's a food wine. I was very turned off by the solids in the bottle. Not settled but off white strands (bacterial?) floating in suspension in the bottle (yes, it was sitting vertically on my desk for 2 weeks prior to opening).

Very unique wine from Calabria, 100% Gaglioppo grapes. Medium bodied, light-red brick color. In a region composed of predominantly industrial, uninteresting wines, this producer shines with a lean, food-friendly style.
