Bewitching “Big Red,” De Conciliis 2010 Naima
March 6, 2020
A Note from Sergio

A fellow Campanian, winemaker Bruno De Conciliis names his wines after music--his estate's flagship wine is Naima, which gets its name from a John Coltrane song--but Bruno also does much more than just honor his favorite music. Bruno also plays jazz to his wines as they age. Step down the stairs into his cantina, and the sinuous wail of a trumpet echoes off the walls, drums beat under your footsteps, and the darkness is made lighter yet more mysterious by the sound of Bruno's favorite music: Jazz. If you consider how much wine, a living thing, responds to vibrations, you can't dismiss the effect of the music on the maturing wines. They must feel it, and they've got to respond to the wild, strange, beautiful strains.

Today, I'm delighted to feature De Conciliis Naima 2010, a beautiful Aglianico that sings of both its Campanian land and the music that surrounded it. With about a decade behind it, this wine transformed from raw youth to its elegant, adult self; it's gorgeous, and it's a wine that gets under your skin like a melody. Being born and bred in Campania, I have a passion for the wines of Italy's South. They have a way of capturing the light's purity, the soil's ancient volcanic power, and the sweetness of the air. Today's '10 Naima is superb--it's a velvety beauty that will make you happy for years and years to come.

Rose petals, crushed flint, dark spices, smoked meats and citrus zest frame the sun-drenched red and blue fruits in the mesmerizing ’10 Naima. This big red uncoils on the palate to reveal tremendous texture, chewy tannins, savory minerals and vivid acidity; a lingering, resonant finish completes this wonderful wine’s drinking experience. A wine for Aglianico lovers, Naima is an unabashed bottling of the beloved grape and the estate’s unique Cilento terroir; grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages in a combination of barrels for three years, followed by a year in stainless steel before bottling. Fewer than 670 cases produced in 2010, with just a handful cases arriving in the US. more info
