Wine Critic Reviews:

...The 2007 Cecubo is drop-dead gorgeous. An extraordinary, expressive bouquet leads to smoke, tar, game and incense nuances as the wine emerges from the glass. There is a slightly wild quality in the Cecubo that is highly appealing. Deceptively medium in body, the 2007 turns increasingly elegant over time, capturing a striking interplay of elegance and power. The wine's inner perfume and silkiness are rare for wines of the south, especially in this price range. This is a stunning wine and an absolute steal from Villa Matilde.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Campania: You simply can't leave Italy without devoting enough time to each one of the spectacular wine regions where you can find some of the most sensational wines you've ever tasted. It may not be the most popular one, but the region of Campania is the home to certain wines you shouldn't let slide. This "happy land" has one of the longest histories of winemaking in Italy. It's also quite unique, given that some of the grape varieties that grow in Campania are very hard to find anywhere else. We can easily say this region is nothing short of legendary - it has even kept the influences of ancient Greeks and Romans. The wide array of grape varieties contributes to the diversity characteristic of Campania. Aglianico is unquestionably one of the most popular varieties, used to make wonderful red wine with high acidity and enjoyable berry flavors. White wines don't fall behind - Fiano is an exquisite variety with touches of pineapple and honey. Other than these grapes, which probably sound familiar to many wine lovers, there are lots of lesser-known varieties that also make captivating wines. Aglianico del Taburno and Greco di Tufo are just some of the names you need to see on the label while pouring yourself a glass of some of the finest Campanian wines.
