Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red with layers of cherry, plum, raspberry and strawberry aromas, supported by spiced notes of pepper and clove. Warm, well structured and smooth, with fine tannins and a background of fruits and spices. A big wine that best pairs with flavored pastas or polenta with meat-based sauces or sophisticated red meats. A deliciously surprising pairing for grilled swordfish.

About Mastroberardino:

Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery, established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino. Pietro was awarded the professional title of 'Mastro' as testament to his skills in quality winemaking, a tradition that has continued uninterrupted for ten generations and one that still continues today. Located in the town of Altripalda, in the ancient region of Irpinia, this family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of this region: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe. Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the ancient winemaking heritage of Campania.
