Antonio Caggiano founded his estate in the town of Taurasi, Campania, Italy in 1990 with the goal of re-establishing the reputation of Aglianico, one of southern Italy’s most important indigenous grapes. An architect and photographer, Antonio came from a rural family and began bottling wine from his own grapes, first producing a Taurasi in 1994 and later expanding production to include other Aglianico based wines, Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Falanghia. The sustainably farmed vineyards are planted at elevations between 900-1,500 feet on clay, chalk and calcareous soil. A new winery was completed in 2006 and the wines age in the estate’s three-story, underground stone cellar. The white wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel, the reds in oak. Antonio Caggiano’s son, Pino manages the estate with the help of consulting enologist Luigi Moio.
