    • "Rubrato" Aglianico Campania IGT 2017

      “Rubrato” Aglianico Campania IGT 2017

      Rubrato, with its clear ruby red colour, reveals the characteristic Aglianico aromas of dark fruit and wild berries. Well balanced on the palate, with a delicate structure and an aftertaste that reveals fresh fruity and delicately aromatic notes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep ruby. Inky nuances complement dark cherry, plum and mineral aromas and flavors. This is a long, refined and very pretty wine. 100% Aglianico, made from 12-year-old vines grown mostly in the heart of the Taurasi production zone at about 400 meters above sea level; does not age in oak (spends 12 months in stainless steel). This is a wildly better Rubrato than past vintages: more serious, more concentrated and deeper, the result of the work done over the years by Antonio Capaldo and Pierpaolo Sirch." Vinous

      "Glazed dark cherries, fresh orange peel and preserved lemons. Very tight and citrusy for this grape on the palate, which is medium in body and flavor and quite firm and expressive." James Suckling

Svelato - open and undisguised, as its name suggests. SUPERIORE.DE

      "There is some good freshness and bright citrus within the 2018 Falanghina del Sannio Svelato. The wine has a pretty intensity and brightness, with intermingled tones of natural rubber, orchard fruit and grapefruit. A colleague of mine who tasted this wine suggested it would be the perfect pairing for spaghetti with colatura di alici, Campania's inimitable anchovy extract used to flavor local pasta dishes or poured over bread."

      Delicate rosé, aromatic vinous scent with notes of roses, violets and undergrowth. Fresh on the palate with fine acidity, soft and a slightly salty note. A wine which does not hide its volcanic origin and which is a pleasure to drink. SUPERIORE.DE

      "If you’ve never experienced an Aglianico Rosato, then pull up a chair. The 2019 Lacrimarosa from Mastroberardino displays both sweet and savory tones on the bouquet, as ripe strawberry and roses give way to savory herbs, Indian spice, and white smoke. Soft textures envelope the palate in ripe fruits, showing more melon now than red fruit, but with a penetrating zing of vibrant acids which motivate the experience and expose the senses to salty minerals. On the finish, we return to the strawberry spectrum, along with alluring inner florals that seem to go on and on and on." Vinous

    About the region
    Campania
     

    In the area of “Tear of Christ".

    Wine from Campania is hardly known here. Campania is associated with Naples, Vesuvius, Salerno, Ischia, the Capri fishermen, the Amalfi coast and of course pizza. But wine? You have to help wine lovers on their way. Taurasi, Falanghina, Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Lacryma Christi. Ring a bell?

    The fine wines were already highly appreciated in antiquity. Names such as Falerner, Massiker and Surrentiner were often mentioned in ancient literature and received much praise. Before its destruction by the Vesuvius eruption in 79, the ancient city of Pompeii was an important Roman wine-growing town. The most famous wine of the "Campania felix" (Happy Land) - as the Romans called the region previously inhabited by Greek settlers - bears the name Lacryma Christi (Tear of Christ).

    In the region on the Tyrrhenian Sea around the port of Naples, almost 25,000 hectares are planted with vines that produce around 130 million litres of wine per year. The four DOCG and 15 DOC zones, however, account for only 19 percent of total production.

    The wines produced in the Mediterranean climate of Campania can thrive on the volcanic and alluvial soils. For some time the economic crisis and the flight of the rural population to the cities slowed down the vigour of the winegrowers. In the meantime, however, a lot is happening again, especially in the area of quality. Pioneers such as Mastroberardino and Feudi di Gregorio contribute significantly to this.

    Aglianico, Falerner and again and again Vesuvius.

    Lacryma Christi, produced south of Naples, is labelled Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOC. Further to the northeast, the best white wine of Campania is pressed around Avellino from the Fiano grape - the Fiano di Avellino DOCG, which also tolerates several years of bottle ageing and then convinces with a multi-layered bouquet as well as with structure and complexity. A little further north, the great rival Greco di Tufo DOCG thrives on volcanic ground. It is often perceived as fresher and more fruity and is a wonderful accompaniment to food. Particularly fine, often fragrant and elegant white wines are pressed from the grape variety Falanghina.

    The outstanding red wine of Campania grows a little further east and is called Taurasi DOCG, which is pressed from the Aglianico grape, which was often underestimated in the past. Due to its high tannin content, this plant can mature for a long time in the bottle. When it has developed into a deep, concentrated and very distinguished wine, it is usually praised in the highest tones. And north of Naples, the legendary Falerner was revived as a DOC wine in its ancient region of origin.

    In Campania, especially in the region of Avellino and in the DOCG Taburno a little further north, the red variety Aglianico in particular produces full-bodied, colourful and aromatic red wines. Here, too, the autochthonous, partly very old grape varieties are remembered and Asprinio, Biancolella, Coda di Volpe and Piedirosso are planted again. Exciting wines come naturally from the volcanic sites near Vesuvius, from the steep terraces of the Amalfi coast and from the offshore islands. The Sorrento peninsula and the picturesque islands of Capri and Ischia also produce some remarkable wines. Even further south on the coast is the large and still young DOC area Cilento, which has remained rather undiscovered but of which some elegant wines have already attracted attention. Future area.
