100% Sciascinoso

Organic, biodynamic, and vegan.

Sciascinoso is an indigenous grape variety with a long tradition in Campania, and not cultivated elsewhere in Italy. It has been almost always used as a blending grape with other local reds like the almighty Aglianico and Piedirosso. Only a handful of growers believe that Sciascinoso could have its own show — and Terra di Briganti is among them. This estate is linked to a minimalistic approach both in the vineyard (8 hectares biodynamically farmed) and in the cellar, avoiding over-produced wines.

The 2021 Sciascinoso displays an evolving violet color, definitely dark and vibrant with blueish hues. Its intense aromas evoke notes of earthy young fruit, blackberries and some subtle spiciness. Earthy elegance and lively freshness show on the palate. This wine is supported by good level of acidity giving way to a persistent mouthfeel.

The Terra di Briganti Sciascinoso enhances the flavors of the everyday popular culinary tradition of Campania, including piazza and many kind of simple tomato sauce pasta (think of rigatoni and cherry tomatoes). Great paired with soft cheeses and grilled vegetables. Serve it slightly chilled.

The grapes are hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeast. The wine ages for few months in stainless steel tanks, then is bottled and put at rest in the cellar before being released to the market. Not stabilized, and unfined and unfiltered. (Therefore the wine can throw some sediments.)
