Founded in 2017 by Jack Lewens, sommelier and co-owner of Leroy in Shoreditch, London and Bruno (Mr Aglianico) de Conciliis, winemaker & creative force behind Viticoltori de Conciliis. With vineyards in Acciaroli and Casal Velino Vigneti Tardis celebrate ancient local varieties, Aglianico, Aglianicone for red wines and Fiano & Coda di Volpe and the more widely distributed Malvasia & Trebbiano. All vineyards are farmed organically (in conversion to be certified in 2021) using biodynamic treatments.
Their wines are made with a light touch and low intervention throughout the process. A mixture of stainless steel and old unseasoned oak is used for fermentation and ageing.
The wine is juicy, young, fruit forward with low tannins, best served a little chilled. Delicate notes of mulberries, bright floral and savoury.
