Tasting notes
Efeso is made from 100% Mantonico, one of the many indigenous grape varieties of Calabria that were cultivated for centuries before almost disappearing completely. Librandi is dedicated to recovering these historic grapes, of which Mantonico is one of the most important. Efeso (Ephesus) was the name of the Greek colony located in Turkey where the Librandi family believes the Mantonico grape originated. Vibrant gold in colour, the Efeso displays layered aromas and flavours of stone and tropical fruits with notes of almonds and honey. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, rich, flavorful, and mouth-filling with zesty acidity, incredible depth and a long finish.
