Rated 93 by Wine Enthusiast
Enticing scents of blue flower, woodland berry, moist earth and chopped herb lift out of the glass. The elegant palate delivers juicy black cherry, raspberry, star anise and cinnamon set against a backbone of firm but refined tannins. It’s impeccably balanced, with bright acidity. Hold for even more complexity and to let the tannins unwind. Drink 2020-2033.
Rated 93 by Decanter
From the Macchia dei Goti single vineyard, 350m above sea level, on clay/limestone soils. Savoury aromas give way to cassis and raspberry; medium-bodied, with smoothly integrated tannins and vibrant acidity, with contrasting blackberry and olive flavours.
Rated 93 by James Suckling
What a beautiful bouquet in the glass of sliced blue fruit such as blueberry essence, as well as brambleberries, blackberry pie, ivy, bark and hints of resin and vanilla. Full body, well-rounded tannins, a thread of acidity and a powerful, chewy finish. Drink in 2020. (Suckling)

Winery Antonio Caggiano

Region: Campania

Campania in Italy is one of the world's most fascinating and beautiful wine regions, located in the west of Italy, in the 'shin' of Italy's boot shaped peninsula. What makes Campania so special is the fact that wines of quality and distinction have been produced in this region for an astonishing length of time, indeed, archaeologists believe that Campania is a truly ancient wine region, with evidence of vineyard cultivation dating back to over three thousand years ago. Today, there are wineries located all over the varied region, making the most of the different soil types and climatic conditions Campania enjoys. The region is also blessed with an astonishing amount of different native grape varietals, and scientists have identified as many as a hundred different species, many of which are used to produce the region's characterful and unique wines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
