The name Quintodecimo is a tribute to the very ancient history of Mirabella Eclano, where the cellar is located today. Aeclanum was a settlement on the Appian Way; in the second century AD it becomes a Roman colony, but is subsequently annexed to the Duchy of Benevento under the dominion of the Longobards. In 663 it will be destroyed by the Greek army of Constans II and called Quintum Decimum because it is exactly 15 miles from Benevento. The city subsequently moved over the centuries to the current hill taking the name of Mirabella Eclano; the link with the territory is therefore very important for this company and the family in order to enhance its characteristics and produce high quality wines. The reference region is Irpinia, a unique region crossed by the Apennine ridge where therefore 6-800 m of altitude are reached and the region is affected by frequent rains, temperature variations, harsh winters and mild summers.
Fermentation for 60% in new French oak barrels and 40% in stainless steel tanks. Aging on its lees for 8 months, followed by the blending of the three wines and a further two years in the bottle
Bright yellow color with amber notes. Very intense, very fine and elegant nose with notes of flowers and ripe peaches, spices and vegetable and mineral notes; on the palate it is clean, long and precise, characterized by a great minerality.
Excellent on fine white meats or tasty and medium-sized fish; the wine has great freshness and minerality that allow it to hold up even with intense flavors.
