un territorio unico, la culla dell'Aglianico

Terroir

The Delite winery operates within the territory of Irpinia, ideally suited to the production of Aglianico. Six hectares of vineyard enjoy the best hilly exposure in the Calore Valley, and are passionately cared for by the family company right through to vinification. The volcanic soil, covered by a strata of clay rich in potassium gives the vine its essential elements. By gradually releasing water to the vines, the clay promotes an unhurried and balanced grape maturation throughout the summer months. It is on the hills of Montemarano, in the territory of Irpinia, where the company is located, that the triumph of Aglianico is celebrated as ‘A grape with particular characteristics that acquires its specific identity only when it becomes wine’. The characteristics of the territory give Aglianico a significant tannic load, making it necessary to wait at least 4 to 5 years in order to fully appreciate the great aromatic and polyphenolic richness of this great wine.

Pentamerone – Taurasi DOCG

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’.
