Irpinia Campi Taurasini DOC “Sella”: why we like it
Irpinia Campi Taurasini DOC “Sella” is a red wine produced with 100% Aglianico grapes from the vineyard located in the municipality of Taurasi, where Sella delle Spine winery was born.
These vines are located on a clayey soil and they are grown using a system called “espalier”, one of the most widespread cultivation methods in the world, in which the vine is grown in more or less long rows, consisting of wooden poles, on which two or more galvanized steel wires are fixed and placed in tension through sturdier poles positioned at the ends of the row.
The harvest time coincides with the first ten days of November. During the reserving period, it is aged in French oak barrels for 4 months, while the final aging phase is spent in 500-litre barrels for 12 months. The refining process takes place in the bottle for a period of 6-8 months.
It prefers combinations with red meats, meat ragout and aged cheeses. It should be served at a temperature of 18° C.
