Italian Market & Wine Cellar
Il Vino di LibrandiThe Librandi Winery and Vineyards are located deep in southern Italy where our family finds its roots. This award-winning establishment has single-handedly put Cirò on the map as a quality grape-growing region in Italy and specializes in native Calabrian grape varietals. Even though the Tursi’s have an intrinsic motivation to support the Librandi’s, we are close family, it can be assured that all of their wines are top quality. The passion and care Nicodemo and his family put into their grapes, surpassed by no one in Italy, is evident in every bottle. A taste of their wine is a taste of our heritage.

Cirò, Riserva, Duca Sanfelice
