  • Montevetrano 2019

    £57.95

    “This is one of the icon wines of southern Italy. It maintains its timeless nature throughout the years, in good vintages and in bad. The 2019 Montevetrano embraces the radiance and elegance of the very good vintage this was in Campania, with cool nights, good moisture and average summer temperatures. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Aglianico and 20% Merlot sourced from a five-hectare site with clay soils. Some 20,000 bottles are made. The bouquet reveals dark cherry and black plum with baker’s chocolate and exotic spice. There is an especially black fruit quality that is almost tarry from the Aglianico, and that grape really pops from the blend, as it should, since this is one of the original “super Campania” wines. Drink: 2023-2038. 95 points

    Managed by the dynamic Silvia Imparato, Montevetrano is one of the iconic wineries of Campania. There are five hectares of vines inland at about five kilometers from the sea on the slopes of the Monti Picentini. Grapevines are surrounded by oaks, Mediterranean brush, cherry, fig and prune trees in medium-density clay soils with some schist in the upper terraces under a medieval castle.”

  • Pietracupa Fiano 2021

    £26.95

    “The Pietracupa 2021 Fiano is a linear and crisp white wine that opens to a flinty mineral tone that dovetails into unripe peach, white flower and pulpy grapefruit. The whole presentation is smooth and very true to this fantastic white grape from southern Italy. The wine ends with notes of freshness and saltiness, and it’s all beautifully balanced. Some 20,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2023-2028. 93 points

    Sabino Loffredo of Pietracupa in Montefredana can be counted on for some terrific white and red wines from Campania.”

  • Pietracupa Greco 2021

    £26.95

    “The unoaked Pietracupa 2021 Greco shows more depth and texture compared to your standard expression of this beautifully nuanced grape (when made in the right hands). Greco has a lot of personality and is poised for a long, Riesling-like evolution if given the correct conditions. Delicate hints of cinnamon and cardamom from the grape skins are already beginning to show. This wine remains versatile and approachable, overall. You can count on Pietracupa for some of the best whites made in Campania. Some 20,000 bottles were created. Drink: 2023-2028. 92 points

  • Pietracupa Taurasi 2017

    £51.95

    “The Pietracupa 2017 Taurasi is a brambly, mid-weight red with sour cherry and wild plum, followed by scorched earth, spice and toasted oak. There is a lot of tarry smoke and camphor ash in this hot-vintage expression of Aglianico, but the finish is balanced with some nice freshness too. The wine aged in stainless steel, cement and large oak casks. Only 2,600 bottles were made. Drink: 2023-2035. 92 points
