Campania At a Glance

Region Name Campania

Like many Italian regions, Campania is home to an impressive array of grape varieties, some found almost nowhere else on earth. Its most important variety is arguably Aglianico, the grape behind the region’s two most famous and respected red wines: Taurasi and Aglianico del Taburno.

  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate A pure expression of Aglianico, the Montevetrano 2019 Core Rosso (with a big read heart on the front label) is a love song from vintner Silvia Imparato to her homeland. This dynamic woman helped to change and modernize the image of Campania wines over the years, and she was among the first to shine a light on the little-known province of Salerno. This is a less formal red wine, engineered for epic nights under the stars with second and third servings of pasta and meat on the grill. The wine is bright and lifted with dark cherry, light spice and a satisfying, food-friendly personality. Production is 20,000 bottles, and the value you get is considerable.

  • Score: 94 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Super balance to this intense red with exquisite spice to the mixed berries on the nose, following through to a full body with fine, well-integrated tannins, succulent fruit and a long, elegant and flavorful finish. All in place and lovely to drink now, but best from 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator A bright red that's herbaceous on the nose, with an aromatic thread accenting the palates wild cherry and raspberry fruit, orange peel and smoke notes. Tangy and lightly chewy on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Aglianico and Merlot. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases made, 200 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Rosso Core impresses with its mix of dark rich fruits, exotic spices, crushed ashen stone and peppery herbs. This is unexpectedly soft and lifted in feel, with a pure display of ripe plum complemented by nuances of sage and rosy inner florals that form toward the close. A layer of fine tannin dries the expression through the finale, as echoes of licorice and black currants linger. The 2018 Core, a varietal Aglianico, could use a short stay in the cellar to unwind. That said, this is a very lifted and cool-toned expression that will perform best over the short term. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
