    Francesco Malena Cirò Rosso Classico '19

    Calabria

    Francesco Malena Cirò Rosso Classico '19

    Savory and authentic are the two words that immediately came to mind when we tried this wine. Made from the rare Gaglioppo (“gah-lee-oh-poe”) grape, grown in the mountainous area of Cirò, on the Ionian Coast at the toe of the Italian boot, it’s a wine you’ll want to share with family and friends as you linger over unfussy yet soulful meals. Medium bodied with moderate acid and grippy tannins—it is, after all, a child of Sangiovese—the wine has notes of red raspberry, tobacco, and earth with a touch of smokiness. Enjoy it with tomato-based dishes as well as light and dark meats. The bottles that make it out of Calabria and into our hands seem to be as rare as the Gaglioppo grape itself, so don’t miss out on this wonderful example.
