This winery was founded in 1996 by Bruno de Concillis. His brother and sister, Luigi and Paola, run things, with Paola in the vineyards. Paestum is a warm area, but quite near the sea, so there are breezes throughout that day. The vineyards are all high up on the hillsides as well. This wine is fermented in tank, and aged in a mix of half tank and half 4-year-old barrels. Dark cherries and berries, earth and spice. Vibrant acidity and supple tannins on the palate. This is not a shy wine, but is a softer more medium bodied Aglianico that goes great with fried eggplant, tomatoes, some cheese, and salumi – trust me, I tested that. It’s a wine of the sunshine that feels right on warm day, with great summer veggies.
