Monstrously huge, the 2013 outstanding vintage - just released. Made with the grape Aglianico, intense yet elegant with dark, smoky chocolate fruit flavours & some spicy, vanilla on the finish. Limited stocks of this wine, so don’t hang around if you want some.

This wine is a bright, deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, this is an intense, complex wine with aromas redolent of red berry fruits and hints of vanilla which follow onto the structured palate which has firm but smooth tannins and a clean, dry finish.

Vesevo is situated in the Irpinian hills of Campania. Known as the ‘Switzerland of the South’, this is now one of Italy’s most exciting wine producing areas. The vineyards are situated from 450 to 700 metres above sea level and are subject to a constant cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this same breeze has blown volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius inland, to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character.

The flavours obtained in the vineyard are carried through the winery by Antonio Melone. The Aglianico is from the warmer area of Benevento and is a fine and affordable example of one of Italy’s greatest grapes. Their Taurasi ‘Ensis’ is made from the higher plots and selected fruit that bring more concentration and complexity to this wine.
