Crafted by the venerable Ippolito 1845 winery, this wine serves as an eloquent homage to the seamless marriage of tradition and innovation that epitomizes Calabrian viticulture. Predominantly composed of Gaglioppo grapes, the Ippolito Rosso 160 Anni boasts an intensely vivid ruby hue—a visual allegory of the land's fervent spirit and inherent vitality. On the olfactory front, it unfurls a complex and enchanting bouquet teeming with notes of ripe red fruits, exotic spices, and a subtle infusion of seamlessly integrated wood. Upon the palate, the wine manifests a harmonious architecture, balanced yet full-bodied, with velvety tannins escorting a long and sumptuous aromatic afterglow. With an exemplary structure, it is a wine that not only invites immediate enjoyment but also promises a robust aging potential. It stands as an ideal culinary companion to hearty dishes such as roasts, game meats, and matured cheeses.
