PASSION IS CONTAGIOUS

The history of Delite wineries is as young as it is ancient. The company is just over two years old, but behind the products of our cellar there is a peasant knowledge that has its roots in the early 1900s. The De Lisio generations do not betray the old family tradition; an overwhelming passion for one of man’s most noble professions: the vineyard. The magic of wine begins in the vineyard, whence it comes to life and takes shape thanks to the masterful work of man who knows and follows the dictates of time and earth.

Our wines

Tradition and peasant knowledge find the right balance with modern winemaking techniques to obtain a unique product with a strong personality. The passion of Generoso De Lisio and his loving management of the vineyard, for over fifty years, are the added value of this family business which is renewed through the managerial work of his children and his grandson Emanuele, today the owner of the company, trained at the Royal School of Viticulture and Oenology, commissioned by Francesco De Sanctis of Avellino and assisted by an expert and passionate oenologist, he creates the proposed labels.

TAURASI

PENTAMERONE | On hills sloping down to the Calore river in the Chianzano District of Montemarano, in the Irpinia hinterland, kissed by the sun from sunrise to sunset, the family vineyard bestows this wine with unique qualities. With 100% Aglianico grape, making it a Taurasi, the wine takes on a particularly dark colour in the glass, and just as enigmatic aromas, offering a delicious bouquet of coffee, rhubarb, ink, rust, and hints of aromatic herbs, and an overall linear, pleasant, fresh, structured and soft tannin taste. A wine that offers unique emotions with an evolved, mature elegance, full of complex tertiary and ethereal scents, Pentamerone is a particular measured interpretation of Taurasi. Its name is inspired by the eponymous literary work by the former governor of Montemarano, from 1626, Gianbattista Basile, which was labelled by philosopher Benedetto Croce as the oldest and richest collection of popular fairytales, and is known in English as ‘The Tale of Tales’.
