2017/18 Cirò Bianco Classico D.O.C

$29.00

Cirò Bianco Classico D.O.C is one of very few D.O.C wine disciplines produced in Calabria and has a rich historical connection to land and culture.

Fattoria San Francesco has produced an elegant expression of Cirò Bianco Classico D.O.C, with a straw yellow colour whose soft green shade alludes to freshness.

An intense and complex bouquet meets the nose; summer fruits mix with tropical notes and citrus as well as delightful white flower nuances such as jasmine.

To taste, you’ll find good freshness, tropical fruits and soft taste. Flavours are persistent and crisp.

A great wine to match to meals with a base of seafood or cheese, or perfect to enjoy on its own when you’re looking for a crisp fruity white.

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

Mmmmm… Cirò Bianco Classico D.O.C. I love the intense fruit punch and complexity of the floral aroma that this wine from Fattoria San Francesco gifts the drinker.

Find something light and complimentary if you’re looking for a great food pairing. My suggestions would be any of the following; asparagus risotto, spaghetti carbonara, cheese fondue, all seafoods but particularly grilled swordfish, kingfish ceviche or spicy fish tacos.

If you prefer your food full of vegetables, a great alternative is avocado mousse, light vegetable soups, orange and fennel salad, or cannellini bean dip on toasted bread.

The Winery

Fattoria San Francesco is located in Quattromani in the D.O.C. region of Cirò in Calabria, surrounded by gentle slopes overlooking the Ionian Sea and vineyards, in the heart of an area traditionally suited to viticulture.

 

The Estate of Fattoria San Francesco finds its origins in the foundation of a convent of monks in 1578, where vineyards were placed in all their surrounding lands.

 

The convent was suppressed by a decree of the King Ferdinando IV on 30 October 1770. After this resolution, the convent’s assets, including the factories, were exhibited at auction and on 14 July 1777 sold to Don Benedetto Siciliani.
From those vineyards, still today, the wines of Fattoria San Francesco are produced.

In every wine of Fattoria San Francesco there is a centuries-old commitment to the year 1777, when the Siciliani Family won the convent at auction San Francesco founded by the monk De Paola

 

Dr. Francesco Siciliani, the last descendant of a family of winemakers, continued the family tradition, creating, in the midst of vineyards and olive groves, a modern cellar with cutting-edge winemaking methods.

 

In 2013, Fattoria San Francesco was taken over by the Iuzzolini family who continued its philosophy by reconciling the most modern winemaking techniques with the two-thousand-year-old wine traditions of the area. With a renewed range of wines of absolute quality, modern and young, the new Fattoria San Francesco immediately enters the high-end market, skipping the large-scale distribution and positioning itself in that niche of excellent products. They have enjoyed numerous International wine awards in recent years.
