60+-YEAR-OLD AGLIANICO IN CAMPANIA
Read More ==>
Campania is a thrilling place. The hectic metropolis of Naples, the mysteries of Pompeii, the bucolic surroundings and gutsy wines of Taurasi and, of course, magnificent foodstuffs as exemplified by Mozzarella di Bufala (the best in the world and a D.O.P. product), help create a destination that is unique in the world of wine, food and travel.
I recently spent the afternoon of Saturday, March 9, 2013, engrossed in a vertical tasting of Taurasi at Mastroberardino that spanned more than six decades. I have long considered Mastroberardino, the first winery in the region to export outside of the province, to be the best such operation in Campania. I had also previously met Piero Mastroberardino in Denver in 2012 and had instantly bonded with this humble, artistic, articulate, tenth-generation winery owner.
