Librandi Critone 2020

Made from 90% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, Critone is a perfect example of Librandi’s belief that the future of Calabrian enology lies in the delicate balance between tradition and innovation.  International varieties like these were originally planted in the 1980s to offer something different to local markets, but as the results have been consistently impressive, Critone has gained importance in the diverse portfolio of Librandi wines.

Critone takes its name from the favorite pupil of the great philosopher, Socrates, and represents Librandi's pursuit of the knowledge to consistently produce better wines.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw-lemon in color, the wine has delicate aromas of green apples and tree fruits complementing undertones of peaches, wildflowers, and a hint of freshly cut grass. Dry and crisp on the palate, this wine shows elegance with layers of flavors that continue to reveal themselves well into the finish. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with seafood antipasti, baked fish, seafood-based pasta dishes, salads, and grilled vegetables.
