Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

Terre Del Principe Vigna Piancastelli takes its name from the vineyard of Manuela Piancastelli, beneficiary of a castle in Campagnia facing Mount Taburno, in Caserta. This thick, extracted wine is made from 70% Pallagrello and 30% Casavecchia, a portion of which was over- ripened on the vine. 2013 is a spectacular vintage for Piancastelli, which opens with opulent aromas of chocolate, exotic spice, dark fruit, and cinnamon. Aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels and 18 months in bottle, this sophisticated wine has a soft and enveloping palate, with very persistent and aromatic spicy notes, and a long lasting finish.

Every vintage, the label of Piancastelli is painted by a different artist. The 2013 label is created by Mojmir U.Je┼żek, which makes this fabulous wine even more interesting! Pair with light meat dishes, or have it with substantial appetizers!

5 of 5 One of my favorite red ever! July 21, 2018
Reviewer: Amy Wallace from San Francisco, CA United States  
I had this amazing  red with my friends before our dinner and with our appetizers: it was terrific!! Delicate, smooth, and layered with outstanding notes of chocolate, mocha, and red fruit!
I would have drank the whole bottle myself!
Perfect also for a date with your loved one! ;)
