Winemaker Notes

Sparkling light red, boasting mineral flavors on the long and firm finish. A pleasant earthiness enhances the core of cherry and blackberry fruit in this linear red.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
This is a very pretty red with dried sage and thyme punctuating fruitier notes of dried blackberries, as well as sesame seeds. Full-bodied, chewy and very spicy, supporting an undercurrent of linear acidity that cuts successfully through the compressed dark fruit. Attractive sweet-and-sour character on the finish. Tannic. Drink from 2023.

Alois Alois Family Winery Image
The Alois family is one of the world's most famous makers of beautiful fabrics, with their silk adorning the walls of the Louvre and the White House. The perfection and passion that they have maintained for centuries in the textile industry has spilled over into their passion for wine. Marrying modern technology with ancient and almost forgotten varieties of Campania, Italy, Alois uses biological techniques of cultivation and vinification with the help and experience of oenologist Riccardo Cotarella and agronomist Nicola Traducca. The fourteen hectare estate is home to a nineteenth century villa which houses the main offices, a tasting room, and a modern cellar in the heart of the vineyards.

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
