The Calabrian Chrysòs IGT, of the winery Ippolito located in Cirò Marina (KR), is a sparkling white wine entirely produced with grapes of the variety Greco Bianco. Delicate and of good acidity, it is persistent to the taste. The golden grapes in the vineyard, the transparency and brightness of the must just squeezed in the cellar, entitle this wine with the appellative of Chrysòs, a name that the ancient Greeks used to give to the moulded gold to indicate the supreme beauty and refined preciousness.
The wine is crystalline straw coloured, its fragrance is intense and persistent with hints of banana, tropical fruits and bread crust in the end. To be served cold, it is excellent for making aperitives.
