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.
The Librandi winery is a modern enterprise founded in 1950 by Antonio and Nicodemo Librandi. Nowadays, the winery is run by Nicodemo, his two sons Paolo and Raffaele, his nephew Francesco and his niece Teresa. To this day, they remain faithful to the principles that inspired their forefathers: a great wine requires love and dedication to the land and its history.
