Winemaker's Notes

Cantina Del Taburno started bottling wines in the mid-1980's and they turn out an excellent Aglianico, which is one of the finest grapes of Campania. It is light-bodied, however slightly high in alcohol with a nose of mild cherry-berry fruit and licorice. The wine has a sweet almond flavor with a long finish.

The Fidelis is made predominantly of Aglianico, although it has small percentages of Merlot (5%) and Sangiovese (5%). It is fermented in stainless steel and aged in a combination of large oak casks and used French-oak barrriques.

Critical Acclaim

"Readers looking for a delicious Campanian red that is ready to drink today should consider Cantina del Taburno’s 2005 Aglianico del Taburno Fidelis. Black cherries, spices, juniper berries and worn-in leather jump out of the glass as this full-bodied, sumptuous wine reveals the multiple dimensions of its expressiveness. Soft and caressing on the palate, the Fidelis reveals tons of persistence and a long, satisfying finish. The Fidelis is 90% Aglianico and 10% Sangiovese aged in cask. It is a great value."
