Tasting notes
A juicy, crunchy and racy southern Italian red from Campania. This is ‘Tuesday’ in their range of wines called ‘La Settimana’ (the week). This isn’t what you’d usually get from Aglianico, the workhorse grape of this southerly part of Italy just above the toe. It’s full of vibrant, crunchy red fruit and very aromatic and fresh. The tannins are deliberately kept low to make it superbly gluggable especially if served slightly chilled.

Martedi Paestum

From: £20.88

Vigneti Tardis is a collaboration between sommelier and owner of Leroy in Shoreditch, Jack Lewens, and his long-time friend Bruno di Conciliis of Viticoltori di Conciliis in Cilento, Campania.

The wines are made organically and biodynamically from their own 3.6ha of vineyards in Cilento and the total annual production of the estate is 25,000 bottles. They use only indigenous grape varieties, Aglianico and the long forgotten Aglianicone for the reds and Fiano and other aromatic varieties like Malvasia for the whites. They farm organically and biodynamically and the wines are made with minimal intervention and very low sulphur additions.

These are artisanal wines made with a distinctly hands-off approach. In a region normally known for producing big powerful wines these are a more delicate, less extracted interpretation with great drinkability and individuality.
