Generations of the Alois family have worked in the silk business. It is with this passion for the finer things that they began producing wine in 2000. Led by Michele and Massimo, their nine hectares are devoted to indigenous local grape varietals. This falanghina is stunning with a delicate floral component on the nose while the palate is full and silky with tropical fruits and mouthwatering acidity. Delicious!
It's a wonder how ancient grape varietals like Casavecchia and Pallagrello Nero become close to extinction when they make wines as unique and delicious as this. Hailing from Italy's southwestern region of Campania, this small producer has created a rustic wine full of exotic spices and forest floor on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate of dark berries and a long lingering grip. These grapes are grown between two volcanoes which give the wine an ashy minerality common to wines in this area.
The grapes come from the steep hill of Tramonti on the Amalfi Coast. It has an intense aroma of honey, pear and apples. The fruits are well balanced with acidity and the finish is long.
A tasty, full-bodied red, with earth, pepper, and smoke. The lively fruit is fresh and bright with just enough acidity to keep it that way. This is an easy wine to drink and enjoy, perfect for Sunday dinner with a big group of friends and family.
