Ippolito 1845

160 Anni 2016


Made from 100% Gaglioppo, which is indigenous to Calabria, the grapes are hand selected, left to dry on mats for 60-90 days, and then go through traditional vinification. Aged for two years in oak barrels, the resulting wine is a celebration of Ippolito 1845’s history, commitment, and passion. Ruby colored in the glass, this wine has tantalizing aromas of berries, violets, raisins, and sweet spice. Complex and round, the wine has great structure and a pleasantly persistent finish. Enjoy alongside braised meats and mature cheeses.

Ippolito 1845

In 1845, Vincenzo Ippolito stamped his initials on a country house that sat amongst vineyards, olive groves, and orange trees in the heart of the Marina of Ciro. With a 160+ year old history, Ippolito is Calabria’s oldest winery. Located in the historic center of Ciro Marina, the heart of Calabrian wine-growing, the winery maintains a farm of over 100 hectares that are distributed amongst rolling hills and sunny plains near the Ionian Sea.

At the forefront of the winery’s mission is the restoration and enhancement of indigenous grapes such as Gaglioppo, Calabrese and Pecorello. Through constant research, the use of innovative techniques, and direct control throughout the entire production process, Ippolito wines convey elegance and a strong identity with their territory. The winery believes in preserving their environment by using sustainable farming and winemaking methods. Today, Ippolito produces 120,000 bottles per year under 14 labels and is present in four continents.
