Mila Vuolo, Campania
A new estate (first harvest 2003), located in Giovi a little village east of Salerno, few kmís north of Montevetrano and a 40 mins driving from Amalfi. Only 4 ha producing as low as 500 cases of nectar. The vineyards lie on a gentle steep facing East protected by the humid winds of the Salerno gulf, at an average altitude of 200 meters. The soil is deep, prevalently clayous and sandy. The climate is typically southern, with hot summers and mild winters.
Each place has is own character: a wine must express the interaction between the place and grape variety. Thus 90% of the effort is vineyard; work in cellar is characterized by minimal interventions.
Mila Vuolo is the first daughter (7 brothers) of a well known family in Salerno. Always been fond of wine and inspired by the success of the nearby Montevetrano, she decided to devote to vines the small family estate. Driven by a true, genuine passion Mila is obstinately driving her chateau garage to the Olympus of Campanian wines. And the first results are just amazing.

I like the passion Mila puts in each single thing she does. Her wines reflect this devotion. A superb Aglianico (in my opinion one of the best available) and a deliciously fresh Fiano. Extremely small volumes. Booking mandatory.
