Made entirely from Magliocco grapes, Magno Megonio is named after a Roman centurion who was said to be the first to recognize the viticultural promise of the area and owned part of the estate that Librandi owns today. The family has been studying and experimenting with Magliocco for years, and although many growers have pulled up these vines in favor of planting grapes with more international renown, the Librandis continue their staunch advocacy of this most promising grape variety.
Ruby-red in color, aromas of plums and black fruits complement undertones of pepper, tobacco, licorice, and chocolate. On the palate, zesty acidity and velvety tannins make for an exquisite experience with this indigenous varietal.
Pair this wine with grilled steaks, demi-glaces, risotto with mushrooms, and truffles.
