Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2015 vintage, Helen McGinn said: 'Shop around in the Tesco Finest range and you can unearth some absolute gems. This one comes from one of the best producers in the Campania region in Southern Italy and is made from the brooding Aglianico grape. Don’t expect subtle flavours; this is rich, chocolatey and definitely needs food. Fantastic stuff.'

Background

History

A native vine variety of Irpinia (Campania). The vineyards are located in specifically selected hill areas, perfectly exposed to sun and wind. The Aglianico grapes (Vitis Ellenica) comes from a terrain mainly calcareous/clayish with a particular continental microclimate. Strong thermal excursions during the summer confer to this wine its unmistakable taste of mixed berries, violet and black cherry.

Regional info

Irpinia is a region of the Apennine Mountains in Campania, South Italy about 40 km east of Naples. In antiquity this was the territory of the Hirpini. The name "Irpinia" derives from the Oscan word "hirpus", which means wolf, and the wolf remains Irpinia's symbol to this day. The territory is largely mountainous, with an intricate network of hills and valleys and a predominantly limestone. Irpinia has a proud tradition of producing wines, cheeses, salami, chestnuts, hazelnuts and the black truffles.
