Product Description:

"The colour is straw yellow with golden hues. On the nose, hints of smoke and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, it is fresh, intense , characteristic and persistent.

The Di Meo estate belongs to siblings Erminia, Generoso and Roberto Di Meo. Its cellars are located near the village of Salza Irpina, in the province of Avellino, Campania, in the winemaking heart of southern Italy. Great wines have been made in Irpinia since the times of the Greeks and Romans. The area is rich in history: the headquarters of the family winery that was started by the Di Meos’ father is a beautiful eighteenth – century farmhouse that was once a hunting lodge of Caracciolo, Prince of Avellino.

Roberto Di Meo is the estate’s enologist and is responsible for wine production. Erminia and Generoso run the commercial and PR sides of the business, in Italy and abroad. The three took different roads in their studies, but are united by a common love for their native land and its exceptional indigenous fruits.

Winemaking is the Di Meo family’s principal activity. At 550 metres above sea level, their vineyards enhance the hilly landscape that surrounds the cellars – hills that protect the vines from the worst of the winter’s storms. The vines are still looked after by a loyal team of the estate’s workers, who hand – pick the grapes at harvest time; the family only makes wine from grapes they have grown themselves. Their 30 hectares of vineyards have been certified organic, and are situated in the various areas of the province of Avellino that are best suited to the production of DOCG, DOC and IGT wines.

In the cellar, state of the art vinification techniques are used that in no way lessen the Di Meo’s commitment to the traditional methods of making Irpinia’s wines. Future plans are strongly orientated towards maintaining the area’s great autochthonous varieties – including Aglianico, Fiano, Greco and Coda di Volpe – and the historic wines they produce. An ambitious programme that unites the making of quality wines with the safeguarding of Campania’s rich viticultural heritage." - Winery
