2015 Quintodecimo Taurasi Vigna Quintodecimo

94 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A profoundly complex and age-worthy Aglianico from Campania's classic terroir of Taurasi. The self-titled Cru wine is from a site on Quintodecimo's estate, where limestone is packed into "expandable clay rocks" resulting in a very different feel to the Cerzito. Intensely aromatic and complex, the Vigna Quintodecimo is a truly compelling wine to decant soon or cellar for some time.

Its Origins

Owner Luigi Moio was born into an historical family of winemakers in Campania dating back to 1880. After an extended stay in France studying viticulture and winemaking, Luigi returned to Italy in 1994 and in addition to teaching at the University of Naples, undertook the task of winemaker at various prestigious Italian wineries. The urge to do his own thing and make the highest quality wines possible in his beloved Campania became too strong to resist and in 2001 his dream was realised and Quintodecimo was born. The estate covers 12 hectares of vineyard, centred on the hill of Mirabella Eclano 420 metres above sea level, where they benefit from warm summers and fresh nights. "This grouping of wines from Luigi Moio boasts some of the very best expressions made in Campania today. I cannot exaggerate my admiration for these efforts made by one of Italy's most celebrated professors of viticulture and enology and his family in the Mirabella Eclano subzone of Avellino. Quintodecimo is a benchmark for Campania wines." (Monica Larner)

What The Critics Say

94/100 Vinous, Eric Guido

"The bouquet on the 2015 Taurasi Riserva Vigna Quintodecimo is restrained at first, requiring time in the glass to truly unfurl; yet once it does, an elegant and gorgeous display of pretty violets, ripe blackberry, blueberry skins, plum, and white smoke lifts from the glass. It washes across the senses like pure silk, ushering in mineral-infused black fruits and spice, with compelling acidity that adds tremendous energy from start to finish. Tannins arrive toward the finale, previously enveloped in the wine’s density of fruit, showing a structured display, yet still so easy to like, as an air of pretty florals and remnants of blackberry fade. It’s a wine of undeniable elegance, which will be hard to keep your hands off long enough to watch it reach full maturity." Drink 2024 - 2036
