Red Wine

750 ml

The grapes of Apollo come from the volcanic hillsides around the town of Ponte, where the vineyards are famed organically and grapes are hand-picked to make the most clean and precise expression of Aglianico del Taburno. Fermented using indigenous yeasts and briefly aged in wood, it is ensured that terroir is the sheer focus of this wine. The bouquet displays aromas of cherries and pepper, layered with spices, black tea, and tar. Full-bodied and dry, yet surprisingly approachable. Apollo is suited for both immediate drinking and cellaring.

About the Winery:

Ocone is a small, family winery based in the foothills of Taburno, just outside Napoli. Founded in 1910 by Giuseppe Ocone and reinvented in the 1960s by his son, Domencio, the focus has always been on Taburno’s previously forgotten grapes – Aglianico, Greco, and Falanghina. The estate has been renowned for its quality and philosophy ever since. The transition to organic cultivation of these ancient varieties has established Ocone as a world-class producer. At the moment, the winery is run by Giorgio and Roberta Vergona, who continue to combine tradition and modernity.
