Irpinia and its wines

Domenico Nardone Nardone and his Taurasi from bouquet Taurasi gave birth to a wine made with the famous Aglianico. Native of southern Italy on the border between Campania and Lucania. Is a sullen, difficult to mold; over the last few decades, many winemakers have ventured in innovative experiments. The company wanted to promote local tradition Nardone's Nardone go it alone in its maintained the vine above. The soils are located on the slopes of the hills Irpinia approximately 270 m a.s.l. In this soil and climate, a few kilometres from the sea, where the winds, Sun and a good standard hygrometric control, combined with a soil particularly clayey limestone with visible components, the fermentation of the grapes provides excellent results. The bottle in the tasting is the 2010 with a degree of strength by 15%. The barrels of Slavonian oak give those large roasts soups typical of wooden step. Only the austere and rustic varieties like aglianico need to be tamed vigorously and clear from productive solutions we believe exceptional. In this way, since the vineyard production, accurate and essential, quality is assured. The smell is intense and complex; the wine accompanying the meal of a cold, rainy autumn day. The fireplace and the chestnuts are completing the painting adorned by the warmth of home and family. The spice are endless. Their persistence makes way to taste very complex. Black pepper, cloves, leather and animal skins, a veiled hint of undergrowth, of autumn mushrooms, are the harbinger of the complexity of flavour that lie ahead. Pairing is simple: Braised wild boar with mushrooms us delle Murge. A homemade barbecue sauce, very light, increased aromatic persistence of the pot to try to make company to that of wine. The fireplace still consumes wood, and constantly burn, the chatter in the family, the warmth of the society, the influence of pure flavors of our Mediterranean agriculture follow us imaginatively in our days.
