Tasting Notes

In this blend, of Zinfandel and Syrah, there are aromas of plum sauce, red velvet and mocha on the nose. On the palate there are notes of black licorice, candied cherries and cocoa powder. We suggest pairing this fruit-forward and jammy wine with a Meat Lover’s Pizza.

Vinosia Luciano Ercolino intends to look to the future of the Irpino Territory and wine, producing, in a modern and dynamic business environment and with respect for the environment, a recognizable and recognized sensory quality, through which spread the knowledge of the terroir among more demanding and sophisticated users of the main international markets, who are always fascinated by Italian grape nectars. In the stylistic number of the wines, which nevertheless daring in the innovations and in the oenological approach there has kept, in any case, the best tradition and an almost homemade character, the consumer will recognise the value of an only and inimitable mark, an emotional treasure coming from a millenary history.

Classics of Irpinia: Santandrea – Taurasi.

Wealth and power: Aglianico in its most classic and expressive version.

 

Fantastic aromas of dark fruits and walnut, sweet tobacco, dark tea and balsamic. Some oysters, too. Full body, powerful and rich. So much going on here.
“This DOCG’s Aglianico wines are famed for their larger-than-life personalities and full-bodied character. Like Aglianico del Vulture in Basilicata, Taurasi wines are considered the ‘Barolo of the south’ and have a great ability to age (some can reach 20 years). Despite their density, high levels of extract and tannin, they retain good linearity and finesse. This grape has a flair for giving wines flavors of raspberries, plums and dark cherries, as well as a smoky nuance evocative of a lit cigar, freshly ground coffee and new leather. As the wines mature, they can take on earthy, forest-floor and gamey notes. Although they can be drunk young, a little patience will smooth out the rough edges.” – Wine-Searcher

This quintessential Kiwi “can-do” attitude and unwavering determination and dedication to what they do have shaped the company over the last 3 decades. Every aspect of the business from caring for vineyards and making the wine, to creating lasting relationships with customers and suppliers is managed with the personal touch of a family business. With this level of involvement at every step of the process they can ensure the highest standards are maintained.

Falanghina

Kiwi, lime and grapefruit, lemongrass, jasmine developed to remain intact for a long time.

Falanghina is an ancient Italian white-wine grape, reportedly of Greek origin. It is also said that Falanghina is the grape variety behind Falernian, the most famous wine of Roman antiquity and the inspiration for Falerno del Massico. There has been a renaissance of interest in Falanghina since the turn of the century, and there is now a movement to restore the reputation of this once-venerated grape.

Most Falanghina is grown in Campania, in southern Italy. The vines thrive in the porous volcanic soils around Mount Vesuvius and the warm Mediterranean climate. The berries are yellow skinned and coated with a thin layer of protective wax.

As a wine, Falanghina can have a slight pine scent, but is better known for its citrus-blossom aromas, in particular bitter orange. On the palate it typically shows classic apple and pear flavors, depending on where it is grown, with spicy or mineral notes.

Though it is increasingly fashionable, Falanghina isn’t yet planted much outside Campania. There is a little in Puglia and Abruzzo, but as yet no international production. Falanghina is often blended with other indigenous Italian varieties, or produced as a sweet passito wine, but varietal expressions of this interesting grape are becoming more popular.
