Mastroberardino Irpinia Aglianico ‘Re di More’ 2015 Review
Mastroberardino is a family in Campania that is responsible for saving ancient grapes native to the region from extinction. They are even going so far as to replant a vineyard in the ruins of Pompeii with grapes to produce wine in the way of antiquity. This Aglianico (grape) is a testament to their love of their land. Coming from the small DOC of Ipirnia in the hills of the hinterland, this Aglianico drinks like you are sipping history. It has an earthy nose that shows off bramble fruit and tobacco (like a tobacco shop). The palate is full and deep with well-integrated tannins that will pair seamlessly with any past or steak dish. This is the best version of a Campania country wine on our market.
