Mustilli - Piedirosso 2018
From the importer -
The Mustilli family settled in the town of Sant’Agata dei Goti at the start of the 14th century, and has been producing wine for five centuries. Sant’ Agata dei Goti is a sub-region of the DOC Sannio, and Mustilli is the only winery in the area. All 20+ hectares are planted to indigenous varieties—Aglianico, Piedirosso, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo. Starting in the 1960’s, Leonardo Mustilli established the modern day iteration of its production, replacing the dirt floor with cement for hygiene purposes and adding electricity. He is the first to have bottled pure Falanghina in the 70s.
Today, the estate is run by two of the daughters- Anna Chiara, who manages the vineyards and winemaking, and Paola, the commercial side of the business. It is a family affair committed to maintaining the integrity of these beautiful hills and producing wine in a traditional manner that preserves the integrity of their history.
