Campi Taurasini DOC is a virtually unknown appellation, even for eonophiles. The territory is the same as the Taurasi DOCG which means that you get to enjoy the fruits of this noble terroir at value pricing. "Campi Taurasini" means "little Taurasi fields." While the Taurasi Riserva is aged for 3 years in oak barrels, this wine rests for one year in oak before bottling. What's beautiful about this wine is that it can go the long haul just like the Riserva. Age-worthy for a minimum of 10 years and more. Great with thick cuts of meats or heavy wintery soups. A fascinating wine the few know about. Makes a great weekend wine or a special weekday dinner! Handcrafted in Taurasi at 4,000 bottles annually.

Enologist Raffaele Inglese has dedicated his entire life to making Aglianico wines. Decades of hard work has produced a handcrafted wine with unique perfumes, flavors, and textures that express ancient lands, times and power.

 

Red wine obtained by an accurate vinification of Aglianico from the Taurasi territory. All the vines are located on the hills in the DOCG area of Taurasi. Harvest takes place in October when Aglianico is perfectly mature. A low yield harvest, 80 quintals per hectare, is well below the allowable limit. This insures that all grapes are of the highest quality and complexity potential. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months and achieves a harmonic taste and velvety texture. Pairs with red roasted meats, aged cheeses, and wild game. Serve at 18 - 20 degrees Celsius.
