The Viaggiatori is a beguiling and complex mix of black fruits, savoury and herbaceous tones. Blackcurrant, dark soy, tobacco, flaming rosemary, chinotto orange - the list goes on and on.

Made from an early picking from the Raffaele's 200 year old Taurasi vineyard where the ancient vines are trained high and over a wire grid. In the past the owners woudl have planted a varity of vegetables and grains below for food. This clear land underneath these vines now makes maintaining the vineyard a more arduos and time consuming task. Fermented and aged in stainless steel this wine is a pure expression of an incredible vineyard. As Joaquin's Taurasi wine are deep and bold wines with along maceration and barrel maturation the decision was made to bottle this wine as an IGT to provide delineation between the two styles from the same vineyard.

Joaquin winery, located in Montefalcione, home to the two DOCG wines, Fiano di Avellino and Aglianico Taurasi, was founded on a mission: to become the flag bearer for one of the great wines of Campania, the Fiano, starting from a meticulous study and selection of antique, pre-phylloxera vineyards in the area of Lapio and Montefalcione, known as the habitat of origin of this variety. In fact, Joaquin has worked tirelessly to reach an expression of Fiano which is the quintessence of the terroir of Lapio, with a purebred typicity which can be found in no other Fiano wine from the area.

This winemaking model has subsequently been applied to other varieties as well, creating a unique production philosophy which characterizes Joaquin. Their motto is
“a new vintage, a new project,” and in fact only the wines which excel in a given vintage are produced.

Joaquin also crafts wines on the beautiful island of Capri. Here they perform what the producer likes to call “triage viticulture:” the recovery of indigenous varieties and the restoration of small, local vineyards. In fact, the project JOAQUIN DALL’ISOLA (Joaquin from the island) strives to safeguard the few vines left on the island with varietals like Greco, Falanghina, Biancolella and the local “Ciunchesa” (an antique clone of Greco).
