Blog: Ciro Bianco | Librandi




Calabria, the southernmost region of Italy, is a land of contrasts. Here the crystal clear sea meets picturesque mountains and wild forests. This diversity is also reflected in wine production. One of the outstanding wineries in the region is Librandi, which has been promoting viticulture in Calabria since 1950. One of their white wines, Ciro Bianco, deserves a special mention.

The grape variety of Ciro Bianco is Greco Bianco, also known as Greco di Bianco. It is an autochthonous grape variety found throughout the Mediterranean. In Librandi's Ciro Bianco it shows its full potential. The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected to ensure the best possible quality.

The terroir of Calabria is characterized by a mild climate and fertile soils. Librandi's vineyards are located on the Gulf of Taranto near Ciro Marina. The vines thrive on sandy soils rich in minerals. Librandi's winemakers focus on sustainability and use organic farming methods to protect the soil and the environment.

Librandi's Ciro Bianco is a wine of great elegance and finesse. It has a bright straw yellow color and a delicate bouquet of citrus and exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple. On the palate it is fresh and fruity with a pleasant acidity that gives it a remarkable longevity. On the finish, it shows a slight bitterness that gives it a subtle complexity.

Ciro Bianco is a perfect accompaniment to fish dishes, seafood and light salads. However, it is also excellent with appetizers and can be enjoyed solo. It should be served at a temperature between 8 and 10 degrees Celsius to develop its full aroma.

Overall, the Ciro Bianco of Librandi is an excellent white wine that combines the best aspects of the Calabrian terroir. So the interplay of grape variety, climate and soil characteristics. And this with an unbeatable price-pleasure ratio for decades! - Gerardo [TS03/23]
