Overview of the Wine
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.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Lively ruby red color with reflections violet, offers captivating aromas of cherry and morello cherry ripe, sweet spices and licorice on a mineral background of graphite and earth. In the mouth it shows consistency and intensity, tannins present but not aggressive, balanced. Roasted lamb, pork and aged cheeses not spicy to better appreciate this wine, frank and immediate, but able to express itself at its best even at a distance of 4-5 years.
