Joaquin 110 Ostrica B.O. Greco 2014

13% abv

Straw yellow in colour with an orange hue. A unique bouquet of golden apple and greengage plums with hints of candied orange rind, acacia honey and sweet spices.
The taste is extremely long lingering, savoury and surprisingly fresh.

Greco from the famed zone of tufo where the soil is characterised by a mix of clay and limestone. The vineyard lies at an altitude of 450 meters a.s.l. and is exposed to the north. The vines, 40 years old, are espalier-trained at a density of 3,500 vines per hectare.
VINIFICATION: The grapes are harvested by hand with a rigorous selection of the best bunches. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine remains to macerate on the lees for 20 days.
AGEING: When the residual sugar is down to 30 grams/liter the wine is transferred to tonneaux of oak and acacia wood where it remains to refine for 6 months without battonage

This winemaking model has subsequently been applied to other varieties as well, creating a unique production philosophy which characterizes Joaquin. Their motto is
“a new vintage, a new project,” and in fact only the wines which excel in a given vintage are produced.

Raffaele Pagano founded his Joaquin winery on a mission: to become the flag bearer for the great wines of Campania - the Fiano & Aglianico. Located in Montefalcione, home to the two DOCG wines, Fiano di Avellino and Aglianico Taurasi, he started with a meticulous study and selection of antique, pre-phylloxera vineyards in the area of Lapio and Montefalcione, known as the habitat of origin of the varieties. In fact, Raffaele has worked tirelessly to reach vinous expressions that are the quintessence of the historic local terroirs.

Joaquin also crafts wines on the beautiful island of Capri. Here they perform what the producer likes to call “triage viticulture:” the recovery of indigenous varieties and the restoration of small, local vineyards. In fact, the project JOAQUIN DALL’ISOLA (Joaquin from the island) strives to safeguard the few vines left on the island with varietals like Greco, Falanghina, Biancolella and the local “Ciunchesa” (an antique clone of Greco).
