The Librandi Efeso is made from 100% Mantonico Bianco. The grapes are hand harvested. The wine is first fermented in stainless steel and then undergoes malolactic fermentation in both new and used French oak. It is also aged for about eight months in small, oak barrels. Finally, it sees a short time of bottle aging too. Only about 1,000 cases are produced of this delicious indigenous greek varietal now grown only in Calabria, Italy. The Librandi family is especially dedicated to resurrecting historic grapes and has produced a full, nuanced wine with an absolutely unique vibrancy and creaminess. Well fruited, buttery, yet pleasingly dry.

The Librandi winery is located in Ciro Marina, a small Calabrian town near the Punta Alice promontory. They have been growing grapes for four generations, and bottling wine since the 1950s. A family-owned operation, it is run by Antonio and Nicodemo Librandi. Their vineyards grow eight different grapes including indigenous ones like Gaglioppo and Mantonico and more international varieties, like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Librandi is especially dedicated to resurrecting old, indigenous grapes that have been dying out.
