MEDALS AND AWARDS
If you see the beautiful television series "My brilliant friend" you would not believe it, but not far from the gray popular houses they make good wine and they are not banal wines, but wines with a thoughtful kindness.
The red grape of the house here is Aglianico. I had heard once that the wines made with Aglianico are the southern Barolos; "no no," said a farmer who produces aglianico, "barolo is aglianico of the north!"
It seems a Neapolitan exaggeration, but pride is justified. Just as the Barolo at first contact it is distant and haughty, but give it time and a friendly smile will appear. In addition there are smells of fruit, spices, espresso, walnuts and crackling parquet. The tannins are firm, the aftertaste is clean. The principles are strict and the heart of gold.
Ian D’Agata, one of the most famous wine writers in the world, has awarded our products over 90 points in the last two years.
Similarly, James Suckling, who with Ian shares the podium as most recognized world wine critic, gave 94 and 95 points to our most recent Taurasi vintages.
In Elsevier, the most important weekly magazine in the Netherlands, famous food and wine critic Nicolaas Klei reviewed the 2015 vintage of our Campi Taurasini wine and wrote:
It is usually the wine importers, with their heads bent and their cap in their hands, who timidly ask the journalist, but this time it was the producer himself who contacted me. A Dutch producer trapped in the hinterland of Naples who now produces wine with his Italian wife.
