(From 2001 Vintage) 100% Gaglioppo. Characteristic brunette ruby color. Nose of leather, roasted fruits, fennel, cumin, and strawberry jam. The palate is stiff-backed but still very silky with flavors of pomegranate, black pepper, and hint of wild game.
Antonio Galloni(From 2008 Vintage) "The 2008 Ciro Rosso Riserva Duca San Felice is very pretty in this vintage. Dark wild cherries, herbs, spices and licorice are just some of the nuances that flow from this mid-weight red. The Duca San Felice is made from Gaglioppo, an indigenous grape that continues to impress for its unique personality. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013."
