Tasting Notes

"Full ruby-red. Clean, fresh red cherry and dark plum aromas and flavors are complicated by brown spices and sweet pipe tobacco. Dense and multilayered, with sweet dark fruit and peppery nuances. Almost 15 percent alcohol, but it hides its alcoholic power well. Renonno is a vineyard located in Montemarano that was donated to Salvatore by his grandparents (nonno is Italian for “grandfather”), hence the wine’s name. This southeast-exposed vineyard is located at 500 to 550 meters above sea level and is planted with vines of different ages (5 to 75 years old); the soil is mainly loose clay and less calcareous than that of the Vigna Cinque Querce. The wine ages about 30 months in barriques and large oak barrels."

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.
