"Salvatore Molettieri is arguably the best producer of Taurasi. His wines, although not shy in tannic power, have a gracefulness and inner harmony that are rarely found in other wines from Campania. They are traditionally made, dense and deep and age magnificently well. Salvatore is assisted by his son Giovanni, a trained winemaker, who is slowly taking over more of the day-to-day activities required to run a winery. They farm 13 hectares, all located within one of the greatest grand cru areas for Aglianico, the subzone of Montemarano, and also have long-term contracts with growers of Fiano and Greco grapes so that they can make Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo as well." - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media

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.
