A delicious full bodied Aglianico wine this Salae Domini Irpinia Campi Taurasini DOC from the Italian top winery Antonio Caggiano from Campania . The vineyards in Taurasi where this beautiful wine comes from are located at about 350 meters above sea level and are surrounded by an atmosphere of folklore, ancient traditions, historic architecture and religion. The city of Taurasi has a historic city center with amazing architectural feats and ancient art pieces. Old churches and chapels embellish the area with its many folkloric festivals and traditions. Taurasi is an important wine center for the region. The soil of the vineyards is a mixture of clay and limestone. The grapes for this wine are always harvested quite late in the season, at the end of October / beginning of November. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, always at a controlled temperature. The wine ages in French oak barrels from the Troncai, Allier and Vosges areas for a period of about 8 to 10 months, depending on the grapes.

The wine has a deep ruby red color and a wonderfully fruity scent. A strong red wine with delicious herbs, roasted nuts and a fine light touch of licorice and tar. The wine is nicely balanced, velvety and delicate in the mouth and has a high concentration of beautifully ripe tannins.
