Also known as the "Barolo del Sud" (South Italy Barolo), this great red wine is made solely from Aglianico Taurasi handpicked grapes. It is a complex wine, with a vanilla and liquorices flavour on an elegant layer of wild berries. Harmonic, dry and soft, with an intense aftertaste that recall black cherries. Refined in oak barrels for 12-18 months.

The producer

The company "I Capitani" has been founded by Ciriaco Cefalo around 1890 and it is located at Torre le Nocelle, a small village in the heart of Irpinia. During 1920 the vineyards have been completely destroyed by phylloxera and have been replanted. Today the company has 12 hectares of vineyards and a modern cellar where the grandson of Ciriaco, who has the same name as his grandfather, continues the family traditions with success.
