“There are truly only a handful of wines in the world that can compare to Eremo’s enticingly dark appearance, with purple and bluish hues. Such color derives from the con-centration and perfect maturation of the grapes which is reflected on the nose and on the palate with luscious black-berry notes, soft spices and overall sensations that fill the mouth. Soft, round tannins are perfectly balanced. A mag-nificent work of nature, tecnique and human commitment.”

94 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

“A red with smoke, plums and hints of balsamic character. Full body, ultra-soft tannins and a round and caressing finish. A gorgeous, luscious and soft-textured red.”

91 Wine Spectator

"Black cherry coulis and boysenberry fruit is laced with graphite, mocha, dried mint and mineral accents in this rich and sappy, medium- to full-bodied red. Dense tannins lend structure, yet they're well-knit and refined throughout. Drink now through 2026. 2,916 cases made. -AN"

Product Description:

"Eremo San Quirico is the winery’s top red wine, made with 100% aglianico grapes sourced from an old vineyard that carries the same name. It is a deeply concentrated wine, ruby red in color. Rich and full on the palate, smooth with aromas of red fruit, cherries and spices. This is aglianico in its purest form and it will be best enjoyed with red meat dishes, game, aged cheeses and rich, hearty meals.

Nativ was founded in recent years by Mario Ercolino, renowned winemaker for some ot the top estates in Campania and Italy, and his wife Roberta Pirone. The brand name 'Nativ' and their wines aim at the best possible representation of the local wines and varietals grown on approx. 15 hectare of estate-owned vinyards located in Irpinia, near Paternopoli and Taurasi, an area famous for fertile soils of volcanic origin, rich in minerals, calcium carbonate and ash, the latter caused by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which struck Pompeii in 79 AD. These constituents are concentrated in the grapes, resulting in features of uniqueness and distinctiveness in the wines." - Importer
