Tasting Notes

  • Vanilla
  • Ripe Dark Fruits
  • Expressive

When you smell Antelio, you’ll be met with an aromatic wine with an expressive character of ripe plums, cherries, blueberries and cassis. Violet in its youth, it delves into licorice and the herbal notes of the garrigues - so typically Mediterranean. A rustic note of wood is always present in the Camerlengo wines.

When you taste Antelio, the density of flavor is impressive . Besides the symphony of aromas, on the palate you notice the remarkable acidity that stands up to Aglianico’s tannic structure and gives it a youthful edge. As the wine opens up let yourself be seduced by its volcanic minerality.

The Brains Behind It

Reviving a family business

The Azienda Camerlengo belongs to Antonio Cascarano, who inherited the land from his grandfather, Giovanni Falaguerra. Giovanni had produced wines and olive oils on the plot in his youth, but production ceased in the 1970s. Antonio revived the company in 2001, replanting vines, and production recommenced in 2013 with his first wine, “Camerlengo”. Antonio’s goal is to work in harmony with the Vulture volcano to naturally grow grapes that retain all of the characteristics of the land.
