Vintage 1999

Our entire history can be summed up in this wine produced from the Gaglioppo grapes that have thrived in the vineyards of Cirņ, or Krimissa as it was known to the ancient world, for three thousand years. It was from this same vine, grown in this same soil, that our ancestors made the famous wine offered to Milo of Crotone when he won the Olympic Games.
The Librandi family follows ancient tradition in the making of Cirņ Rosso, reviving a hint of our glorious past.
