2020 Ciro Bianco
100% Greco from the Scala family’s lowest vineyards, between 100 to 150 meters above sea level. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this binanco is fresh and crisp with hints of white flowers, nuts and lemon, plus juicy tree fruits (pear, apple). Slight salinity; just enough to make you drool on your shirt. Some fresh rain on the pavement, too. Vibrant acidity, vibrant wine.
Fun fact: Calabria is located at the ‘toe’ of the Italian peninsula, and Cirò is Calabria’s best known wine region. The town of Cirò was one of the original Greek settlements and the site of the earliest Olympic games, where an ancient version of Cirò wine was given to the winners as a prize!
