Hot Aglianico at a cool, cool price!

naima blog1Get hip to this swell deal on the collectible Naima!

Admirers of Aglianico need look no further for the best deal you’ll find this weekend. Vino has just two cases of the 2004 vintage of Naima, De Conciliis’ renowned Aglianico, and we’re making it available at a very special price. Recognized internationally as one of Campania’s top wineries, the De Conciliis estate is positioned in the heart of Cilento, the area comprising the central and southern portions of the province of Salerno. Blessed with one of Italy’s most desirable climates, the family grows its Aglianico on high-altitude vineyards facing south-west towards the Mediterranean. The wine is aged for a year in barriques, a year in tonneaux, six months in steel and a further six in the bottle before its release. The result is a full-bodied, modern expression of southern Italy’s signature grape.

Bruno De Conciliis and his family are huge jazz fans, and are quick to make connections between the art of music and winemaking: “Jazz music is our way of making wine,” they say. “We improvise the melodies of the grapes and make a unique performance of every harvest.” Indeed, Naima is a direct reference to the John Coltrane composition of the same name, written for his then wife, Juanita Naima Grubb. The track can be found on the sax legend’s groundbreaking 1959 album Giant Steps (Atlantic). “Naima” and Naima: is there no greater combo?
