Description

Viticoltori de Conciliis Donnaluna Aglianico has a shining, ruby red colour, marked by purple flashes. The nose profile is noteworthy, offering fruity aromatic hints of undergrowth and sour cherries, intersected with fragrant imprints of withered flowers and oriental spices. The warmth in the mouth is immediately dampened by fresh and soft notes of cherry, plum and pepper. Refined earthy and pulpy essences, nice weight that makes this wine ideal with food.

Viticoltori de Conciliis is an artisanal family-owned winery based in southern Campania, representing the best of contemporary winemaking in southern Italy, with mineral, complex Fiano and rich, layered Aglianco. The winery was formed in 1996, when siblings Luigi, Bruno, and Paola convinced their father Alessandro to stop selling their grapes and make their own wine. Viticoltori de Conciliis own 15 hectares of vineyards, farmed organically, set in rugged coastal foothills with altitude and sea breezes balancing out the Mediterranean heat. The family are jazz aficionados, which is reflected in the names of their wines: ‘Donnaluna’ is a play on the jazz standard ‘Donna Lee’ made famous by Miles Davis and Charlie Parker, while ‘Naima’ is named directly after a John Coltrane tune. The quality here is unmistakable, with a selection of pure, terroir-driven wines from an exciting producer – and at this price point, there is no excuse to not try them.

Food matches: Stick to the classic recipes of the region – a Neapolitan Lasagna packed with Ragu.
