About Cantina del Taburno

Cantina del Taburno is located in Campania, on the slopes of Monte Taburno which overlooks the town of Benevento just 15 miles away. This area is all... about the wonderful indigenous grapes of Campania like Falanghina, Fiano, Aglianico and Piedirosso. The rich soils, the incredibly balanced weather this region enjoys regularly and, of course, the particular microclimate the slopes and nearby mountains create make for some incredibly delicious wines. The winery at Cantina del Taburno was founded in 1972, but the vineyards had long been a part of what was called the “Consorzio Agrario di Benevento” (Agrarian Consortium of Benevento) which was established in 1901. At the time, these Consortiums were vital for the survival of Italian grape growers as the most of them were too poor to grow grapes, make and bottle wine AND do sales. It was a group effort that was common in all of Italy and ensured all could benefit. While most producers in northern and central Italy managed to become independent quickly, the south has been making their mark only now in the last 15-20 years and they are coming up strong. Today the estate boasts 600 hectares of land and covers all corners of the Sannio wine making region around Benevento.

About Agricola Punica

Giacomo Tachis is almost single-handedly responsible for not only the creation of Super Tuscan styled wines, but for helping the region create the market... around it. He has consulted on hundreds of similar projects from the 1970s until his death in February of 2016. In the 1980s Giacomo had many projects already underway in Tuscany and his eye went to the island of Sardinia as the next place to explore for great winemaking. This region was already a place where great wines were being made and he wanted to dive right in. During one of his visits to southwestern Sardegna – in a region called Sulcis – Giacomo found the right place to execute his plan of great Sardinian winemaking. In collaboration with an existing winery called Cantina di Santadi, Giacomo Tachis started to play around with the native Carignano grape and began making local wines to better understand their nature. He saw huge potential in blending the Carignano grape with other varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon which he would soon start doing. It took a few decades, but finally Tachis was able to join the Tuscan style with that of Sardinia and in 2002 the famous Sassicaia family invested in Agricola Punica.
