Overview of the Wine
Since my mother’s last harvest, in 1987, the world had changed and viticulture made no exception. That’s why I had to start from scratch, or nearly so. I bought new land, replanted obsolete vineyards, built a modern cellar, selected an oenologist who shared my same view of wine and worked side by side with my workers on the farmland to understand its dynamics and complexities.
On our farm in the Sannio area, we now have 12 hectares of vineyards and a 5-hectare olive grove, treated under organic agricultural methods. I took a gamble on the Campania heritage of grape varieties, as I believe that the peculiarity of a territory is its wealth, especially in a global economy.
Our wines and extra virgin olive oils are made with our grapes and olives only. Attending to the whole production process allows us to guarantee its quality and consistency over time.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Perlingieri’s latest wine is a new style of Aglianico. No long extractions, oak, evident tannins or high alcohol content. ‘Brizio’ is ready to drink up on release with juicy red fruit notes and soft tannins. Try pairing it with charcuterie or enjoying as an aperitif. The name ‘Brizio’ is a tribute to Alexia’s mother’s great grandmother, Carolina Brizio, owner of Casino Brizio, where she lives and works today.
