The Story

In the Scala family since 1949, the domaine is now run by Luigi Scala, who leads the production of Cirò wines following family traditions. From the growing of the grapes to the refinement and aging of the wines, he favors quality over quantity and aims to produce a distinguished Calabrian wine. The winery is truly a family business as Francisco Scala oversees the business side of the winery. The vineyard is 18 hectares for an overall production of 100,000 bottles.

M+Q Notes

100% Gaglioppo, a medium-sized, thick-skinned grape indigenous to Southern Italy and best known for the production of Ciro DOC.  It’s packaging hails from the 1970s in striking red, white and black coupled with a unique typeface. Aromas of red fruits and spice complement undertones of cranberries, wild berries, and plums.  Lightly dry, moderate tannins make this a perfect food wine.

Food Suggestion

Parmesan, herb crumbed lamb cutlets
