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
90+/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata (2018 vintage)
"Pale straw-green. Clean, fresh aromas and flavors of chlorophyll, candied lime peel, bittersweet herbs and sweet pear skin. Closes very long and fresh, with hints of apple nectar." Drink 2019 - 2023
93+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2017 vintage)
"The wines of Quintodecimo excel in terms of mouthfeel and texture, and they show a richness that is for the most part unmatched by its peers. That's one important takeaway from the 2017 Fiano di Avellino Exultet, a wine that exhibits soft and silky contours. There are no hard edges here, yet the fruit freshness and purity rise unobstructed to the top of the bouquet with effortless intensity. This beautiful wine offers classic lines and a stunning inner naturalness that is so specific to this line from the Moio family.
93/100 Decanter, Steven Spurrier (2017 vintage)
"From 12ha of hillside vineyards at 420m altitude, benefiting from warm days and fresh nights, this is tighter and more restrained than the same producer’s Falanghina. Vivid intensity, lime flower on the nose, stone fruit flavours and a tangy finish."
