Wines/Italy/Campania/Conca d'Oro

Campania, the sunny South of Italy around the Bay of Naples, was famed for its wines for 1,000 years before the Romans even arrived.  Well known today for its fragrant whites from the Fiano, Greco and Falanghina grapes, the finest reds are made using Aglianico, including the flagship Denominazione Taurasi.

 

Located in the village of Monteforte Irpino, Cantina Conca d'Oro is the family operation Salvatore Barletto, who with his wife, 3 sons and daughter, produce a small range of classic Campanian wines from vineyards located in the nearby hills.  They work primarily with Greco and Aglianico, producing carefully crafted, well balanced wines at attractive pricing.
