The 2005 Du Cropio Don Giuva Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore is a light to medium bodied, aged wine, with nice aromas of dried red berries, leather and vanilla. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium to long. Drink now and for the next few years as it will not improve with age. My impression: NICE, 88.5 pts - great value for lovers of aged wines. Tasted Dec/11.
