Irpinia Aglianico Vigna Cinque Querce by Salvatore Molettieri 2011

Irpinia Aglianico Vigna Cinque Querce

by Salvatore Molettieri 2011

Producer : Salvatore Molettieri

Region : Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

"Good bright dark red. Ripe aromas of red plum, red cherry and chocolate. Lush and smooth on the palate, with plum, red cherry and sweet spice flavors conveying an impression of strong extract. Finishes chewy but not drying, with plush tannins and mouth-saturating length. This big, complex, perfumed wine carries only a “Campi Taurasini” designation (this is one of Italy’s many lesser-known DOCs), but it’s as good as other people’s Taurasis."

The Producer

Salvatore Molettieri

The Azienda Vitivinicola Salvatore Molettieri was established in 1983, giving an entrepreneurial dignity to a farming, viticultural and wine making tradition that goes back intime for at least four generations. The work in the ancient family vineyards and thirty years of experience at the estate are part of the knowledge of Salvatore, vigneron and wine maker and, thanks to this, the estate now has an important position on the national and international markets. The vineyards extend for 13 hectares and they stand at 500-600 meters above sea level on the hills of Montemarano, one of the seventeen small towns which are part of the Taurasi DOCG appellation. This area, the soils of which are clayey-calcareous, has an excellent exposure and it is ideal for viticulture and wine making and in particular for the production of Irpinia DOC Aglianico, Irpinia DOC Campi Taurasini, Irpinia DOC Rosso, Taurasi e Taurasi Riserva DOCG and for the production of the white wines Fiano di Avellino DOCG and Greco di Tufo DOCG.
