Wine Type

Husband and wife team Francesco and Laura de Franco are in Cirò, a region dominated by one producer: Librandi, who produces over 200,000 cases per year. By contrast, Francesco & Laura make only 2000 cases total.  They work with the grape variety Gaglioppo, a rustic variety native to the area which typically has dusty tannins and aromas of roses; it is an offspring of Sangiovese and a cousin to Nerello Mascalese.  This is most certainly a food rosé driven by red fruit, a dusty mineral undertone and rose hips, along with a little bit of tannins.  This wine will make you think a little differently about rosé and is a real delight with summer pastas, tomato-based fish dishes, aged pecorino, and artichokes.

Grape: Gaglioppo

Viticulture: Organic, with biodynamic practices
