TCD OPINION
 
Four star year considered very good.
A deep, brooding, highly extracted wine, the 2005 Irpinia Aglianico is a fantastic example of southern Italian winemaking. This Aglianico wine is making a huge impression internationally as the south is finally beginning to show its potential.

TCD Score: 85/100
This wine from the Campania region scores 85. The Irpinia Aglianico is traditionally the cheapest expression of the Aglianico grape but being a little more mellow than a full blown Taurasi isn't always a bad thing. This is a great table wine and works perfectly to compliment most meat and pasta dishes.

 
 
Colle di San Domenico
 
The precise geographical location of Chiusano San Domenico places it at the crossroads of one of the most interesting wine making realities of Campania, that is at the centre of that limited district where the vines reach the highest expression of quality. If, when producing wine, men make use of a natural element which changes into something new and unequalled like a work of art, it was natural to try and produce a little work of art here which respected the healty and genuine peasant traditions, the fruit of ancient experience handed down from generation to generation.

With this as its motive the company “Cantine Colle di San Domenico” could not deny the need for detailed research into the quality which unites al the phases of production; from the agricultural techniques, to the strict selections of grapes, to the wine making techniques enriched by modern methods of production which emphasise even more the intrinsic quality of the wines, and the storing of the product.
