This is the top-shelf red blend from Calabria's Librandi. The 2016 Gravello is a blend of 60% Gaglioppo and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in barrique for 12 months. Some 90,000 bottles were produced. Since the last time I tasted this wine (a few years back), I found this vintage to be nicely focused and sharp with dark fruit intensity. This is a mid- to full-bodied red wine with firm tannins and a touch of cherry sourness or bitterness on the close. Drink Date: 2018-2025. Score - 91. (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Dec. 28, 2018)
