Details

Pellarosa Aglianico Rosato Cacciagalli 2017, Biodynamic wine, fermented and matured in terracotta amphorae, full bodied and structured Rosato, will age and develop, ideal for BBQs when it is too warm for red. A new Cuvee from Mario at Cacciagalli, a wine which offers easy fresh drinking and tension with something more, layers of rich Aglianico fruit and minerals underpin this dark coloured Rose wine. Made with a short maceration before being racked off the skins and put in Amphorae to finish the fermentation and maturation. A 'serious' Rose, for food, Olive oil based dishes, fresh Tuna, Salmon or Monkfish on the BBQ, roasted tomatoes with garlic and other such Mediterranean fare.

I Cacciagalli is the name given to the area of land where Diana and Mario Basco have started their biodynamic wine estate. The 9 hectares of vines are located in a small hamlet a couple of kilometres outside the town of Teano in the province of Caserta. The estate lies in the shadow of the inactive volcano Roccamonfina which gives rise to the complex volcanic terrain which impart such character to the wines. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals and in particular potassium and is very fertile. The surrounding woodland is full of chestnut and hazelnut trees, pine and many wild flowers and other fruits. This place is an oasis of calm where nature flourishes and here Mario and Diana live out their dream of creating high quality natural wines.

Diana is an agronomist and the land has been in her family for generations, when she met passionate wine connoisseur Mario, they started their biodynamic farm and are now fully certified. They have started to ferment some of the wines in clay ovoid eggs, buried deep in the centuries old winery at their home, as well as using skin contact for the whites. The reds, are rich and elegant with long ageing potential.

Cacciagalli is located in an ancient building which stretched back centuries to a time when it was the house of the noble family who owned the local land and rented it to peasants. The building houses a 500 year old cellar where Mario stores the wines once bottled. There is a true sense of nature and history at play at the beautiful estate. The wines have the finesse and style to match.
