2006 I Favati "Cretarossa" Campi Taurasini
The I Favati winery is located in Cesinale, a town and surrounding hilly area in the heart of Irpinia (east of Naples, in the region of Campania), a land with a profound calling to the creation of quality wines. Irpinia's unique, indigenous grape varieties make up all of I Favati's vineyards, which benefit from a perfect exposition to the sun. Each year, the harvest is carefully supervised by brothers Piersabino and Giancarlo Favati, founders of the winery. The region of Irpinia contains the DOCG of Taurasi, which is considered by many to produce the greatest, ageworthy Aglianico wines in Italy. The Cretarossa vineyard is located very close to Taurasi and produces structured wines not disimilar to its famous neighbor, at a considerably lower price! 100% Aglianico.
