"The Emperor's Wine." This small craft wine is made with 100% Aglianico. The ancient grape has been growing in the Campania region of Italy for over 2,000 years. It was the favorite of the Roman Emperors for its superior quality and ability to age decades.
A fascinating wine that few know about.
Handcrafted in Taurasi at 4,000 bottles annually.
"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.
Pairs with red roasted meats, aged cheeses, wild game, heavy wintery soups.
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.
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.
