A fascinating Southern Italian white with a richer, almost waxy texture that’s known to be age worthy. An almost fleshy nose, loaded with peach and apple fruit. Beautiful bright lift on the palate keeps the energy levels high. If you like richer whites and want to try something a little different look no further.
Notes on the producer
The Alois family has roots in the Italian fine silk business going to the Kingdom of Two Sicilies. Breaking tradition with the family tradition of supplying silks to the crowned heads of Europe as well as the Louvre Museum and the White House, family patriarch Michele decided in the early 1990s to embark on a new adventure, restoring forgotten varietals and making wine from them.
At the foothills of the Caiatini Mountains in the province of Caserta, in a plateau comprising nine beautiful hectares, Michele Alois alongside his two sons Massimo and Gianfranco, made his dream come true: the vineyard, the cellar and a rural home with 18th-century Bourbon dynasty origins. Campania is known worldwide for its expressive whites like Falanghina, Fiano and Greco and of course it’s stately noble reds from Aglianico.
