2013 'Bacioilcielo' Fiano, IGT
Retail: $25.95 / btl (6 btls/cs)
Named for the Jimmy Hendrix song, Bacioilcielo (Kiss the Sky) is 100% Fiano. This is a charming white with typical notes of lemon jam, white peach and chamomile, finishing with nice minerality and a hint of bitter almond. The label features a fitting psychedelic graphic that certainly makes the wine stand out. A perfect aperitif or seafood wine.
2012 'Donnaluna' Aglianico, DOC
Retail: $35.95 / btl (6 btls/cs)
Aglianico is often referred to as the Nebbiolo of the South — it's like a Barolo with attitude. Generally quite rustic in character, De Conciliis' version is fruit-forward with ripe, velvety tannins. Aromas of black cherries, earth, tar and chocolate burst from the glass. This wine is drinking beautifully now, or could be cellared for a few years to develop further complextity.
2005 'Naima' Aglianico, IGT Paestum - very limited availability

90 Points, Wine Spectator
Named after the John Coltrane song, this intriguing wine evokes power and elegance. It's concentrated with a core of dark fruit, complimented by herbs, leather, licorice and roses. The wine is fermented using native yeast, is aged for a total of 3 years in a mix of new and old French oak, and is bottled unfiltered. One for the cellar.
