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

93/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata (2018 vintage)

"Bright medium yellow. Ripe banana, peach, custard cream and marzipan on the nose and in the mouth. Fresh and ripely tannic on the long, suave finish. A much more refined version of Greco wine than is normally encountered, but owner Luigi Moio has showcased an uncanny and unique talent with this grape variety over the years. Yet another standout Greco di Tufo from the Quintodecimo estate. Well done." Drink 2019 - 2024

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

"The 2017 Greco di Tufo Giallo d'Arles shows a leg up on the estate's Fiano, only because this wine is a little crunchier or firmer in terms of texture. That Quintodecimo trademark richness or creaminess is abundant, only there is a tighter framing of crisp fruit and tart citrus in the case of this wine. You feel a slight snap or crunch in the mouth, and that quality will help the wine along its aging trajectory. Amalfi lemon, sweet almond and sea breeze are three basic components of the complex flavor profile of this mid-weight white."
