PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
The IGT of Paestum covers the southern two-thirds of Salerno in Campania and corresponds to the Cilento geographical region, famous for its mountain ranges and dramatic coastline on the Tyrrhenian Sea. This terroir, which includes clay and limestone soils, brings forth powerful yet graceful wines that seamlessly balance fruit-driven richness with graceful elegance. The fruit reaches its fullest potential in the hands of Luigi and Raffaella Maffini, the talented proprietors and winemakers behind today's wonderful offer.

Since their humble beginnings in 1996 when they bottled their first wine from a small family vineyard planted in the 1970s, Luigi and Raffaella have been dedicated to elevating the quality of wines produced in southern Campania and getting the native Aglianico grape the proper recognition that it deserves on the world wine stage. To that end, they have encouraged young, up-and-coming farmers and winemakers in the area to take up the Aglianico mantle and continue their efforts, including their children Lia and Pietro who work alongside them tending to their now 15-hectare estate.

Today's wine is a monovarietal (100% Aglianico) fermented in stainless steel and aged in seasoned oak so that its lush, ripe fruit characters take center stage on the palate. Aromas of violets, blackberries, plums, and herbs lead to an inky, ripe palate resplendent with black cherries, cassis, and black currants layered with baking spices and herbs. The tannins are pliant and the acidity is juicy, giving it a texture that is smooth yet well-structured.
