Cantine Iorio - (Italy)

Geological events largely determine the surface landscape of Campania. Extinct volcanoes remain a permanent part of the landscape, and create a "terroir" in which typical grape varieties flourish. This provides its not too rich soil, with a perfect water balance. This works perfect for the grapevines, resulting in its extra minerality and vivacity. For ages people have been active in wine- and olive-growing, pushing its quality standard forward the past decades. Influenced by brothers Pietro and Luca, in 2004 Iorio decided to largely invest in modern techniques, resulting in a tremendous boost for the Azienda. Today, the domain is a wonderful and ultra modern site, decisively producing top brands ! Furthermore, the best Aglianico's equal the best wines from the north, in force as well as shelf life , giving them the nickname "Barolo from the South".
