Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore 2018

Calabria's best known wine region is Cirò, extending from the Ionian coast to the eastern foothills of La Sila with the classico zone centred around Cirò and Cirò Marina in the province of Crotone. Here, Gaglioppo is king. One of Italy's oldest varieties, recent DNA studies have found that Gaglioppo is a natural crossing of Sangiovese and Mantonico.

The Scala family's Ciro' Rosso is from 'vigneto Franza', land that has been in the Scala family since the 17th century. Planted in 1965 on clay and sandy soils, the climate is hot and dry but the Ionian Sea has a moderating influence, bringing cooler temperatures at night. Aged in concrete tanks for three years, this is brimming with strawberry and cherry fruit with hints of rose, spice and orange.

The 2015 Barbaresco Maria di Brun, the estate's flagship, is also the most powerful Barbaresco in the range. The 2015 is going to need a few years to shed some of its formidable tannin, but it is likely to always remain dense and a bit monolithic. A rush of red cherry, pomegranate, raspberry jam, rose petal and spice build as this unctuous, full-bodied Barbaresco shows off its personality. This dense, tannic Barbaresco holds a good bit of promise. 93 points, Antonio Galloni
