Overview

Grape

Falanghina

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

91/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata

"Bright straw-yellow. Very ripe banana, apricot and sweet herb aromas and flavors. Juicy and piercing in the mouth, offering delightful floral lift and finishing saline bite. A lovely Falanghina." Drink 2019 - 2021

94/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2017 vintage)

"This is a terrific wine, and although it does not share the same tonic focus that we saw in the excellent but cooler 2016 vintage, the 2017 Irpinia Falanghina Via del Campo comes very close indeed. The bouquet is redolent of sweet lemon and grapefruit with soft accents of mountain herb or wild basil. Of course, you can count on that pronounced minerality or salinity that comes across in all these wines. These Falanghina vines were planted in 2004, and we are coming up to some very interesting production years for those plants.
