OUR WINES

    “ION” like purple, from the ancient Greek “ἴον”, recalls the colour and flavour of the wine in its name and reflects the symbiosis between the wonder of nature and man’s expert, knowledgeable work.

    It is a “Campi Taurasini DOC” a sub-area of Irpinia DOC, and is obtained from Aglianico grapes, which express the sincere flavours and uniqueness of its territory of origin.

    It is a ruby wine with purple hues; having complex aromas of ripe cherries and blackberries.

    The taste is fresh, smooth with a lingering finish.

    After 12 months of ageing, it is ready, enjoyable but still able, however, to mature in the bottle for a long time.
