Even this basic Ciró puts me in a sentimental mood, bright yet just seductive & voluptuous enough. I adore the more expensive Duca de San Felice version of Gagglioppo, and whenever anybody starts yapping about loving big, burly reds I just want to give them Librandi's Magno Megonio & watch the astonishment grow!

2012. Decent enough when given a good chill, definitely much better on second swig and with red sauce dishes.

This wine has very racy acidity and interesting tannin structure. Reminiscent of Nebbiolo. Great value and worth a try.

A little hot. Licorice and strawberries. Lighter than I was expecting.
