The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. Despite being so far south, there are large differences here between day and night temperatures, making this one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest.


Full of smoky, ripe black fruit flavours with a touch of cassis and herbs; it's quite an intense and layered red.

While mostly matured in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh primary flavours a small proportion was aged in American oak barriques and this lends a subtle vanilla influence and gives a nicely rounded structure.

Made entirely from Aglianico, the main red variety grown in this part of Campania, on poor volcanic soils at around 500 metres above sea level. It's a wine that can quite happily be drunk on its own, buy it also goes really well with things like barbecued lamb, or even a mushroom risotto.

A dark, brooding wine with rich aromas of chocolate, mocha and ripe black cherries. The intense, savoury palate balances the weighty fruit with the ripe, supple tannins beautifully and finishes on a long, smoky, chocolate note.
