Librandi Ciro Bianco DOC 2008, Calabria

The second tasting at The Wine Room of Forest Hills from the Calabria region is a beautiful crisp white wine made from 100% Greco Bianco grapes. Straw colored with fresh aromas reminiscent of rain water and flowers, with lush but delicate flavors of pineapple, melon and pear, rounded out with a slight tartness. Has a long finish. $12. pairs well with fish, shrimp or any shellfish, or a soft cheese and fresh fruit. Aging: Three months in stainless steel tanks and one month in bottle.
