Today the winery Librandi owns more than 232 hectares, all located in the province of Crotone. The main grape variety is Gaglioppo, which accounts for about 60% of production, followed by Magliocco and Greco bianco (all native grape varieties). In terms of wines, production is concentrated in Cirò DOC (in its three varieties: Rosso, Rosato and Bianco) and Melissa DOC (rosso & bianco) and Val di Neto IGT. The production, which currently amounts to about 2.5 million bottles, is 50% exported. The countries with the strongest demand are Germany, the United States, Japan, Switzerland, Canada and Brazil. The other half of the production is distributed within Italy.

Librandi's first Gravello was released in 1990 with the 1988 vintage. The small quantity of bottles originally produced was manageable, but not easy to market. Today, the quantity of bottles is many times what it was then, and easy to sell. The wine is based on 60% native Gaglioppo and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Gravello is aged for 12 months in Allier barriques, with a short bottle aging of 6 months before marketing. Wine of excellent spicy sweetness and aroma: blackberry, ripe cherries, coffee, cassis and vanilla, soft, round and dry on the palate, always good transparency, dense, persistent finish. - Gerardo

"The Librandi brothers have certainly not made their task easy in the last five years. Regardless of all the economic problems, they invest time and money in research, clone selection and in the protection of species of the native Calabrian vine. In this way, Nicodemo and Tonino are creating an almost otherworldly leap in quality." - Gambero Rosso
