Librandi - Southern Italy
Highly acclaimed southern Italian winery and winner of 12 Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri Awards, Librandi is a modern enterprise founded in 1950, but the family has been working with wines for centuries. Four generations of wine-growers lie behind the Librandi family, who remain faithful to the principles that inspired their forefathers.
For four generations we have been steadfast supporters of our land and of its richness. We strongly believe in what it represented in the past, what it represents today and above all what it will represent in the future for the world of wine.
We started from tradition; Gaglioppo, Greco, and a large number of native varieties present in the region. We started with head-training and with rootstocks traditionally used in the area, as well as with the teachings of our expert growers, whose skills were rooted in the centuries of Cirò’s area wine-making.
Then we turned to the leading experts in the vine-growing and wine-making industries because we knew that meticulous research would allow us to focus on, preserve and improve our wine-making heritage. This has always been our goal and our demand to the scientific community. Far from wanting to invent or change anything, through science we merely wished to reach a deeper, ultimate understanding of the great treasure that was available to us.
We now know that our original intuition was a good one and that some of the most beautiful pages in Calabria's wine-making history have yet to be written.
