92 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The estate's 2005 Casavecchia reveals a flavor profile similar to the Pallagrello Nero, but with far greater richness and density in its fruit. Black cherries, smoke, earthiness and minerals all come to life in this generous, utterly engaging wine. Although the tannins remain firm, the wine reveals plenty of sweetness and depth to provide lovely overall balance. This is a great effort from Vestini Campagnano. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017. Campania is one of Italy's richest oenological regions, especially when it comes to the variety and breadth of its indigenous grape varieties. My guess is that most readers may not be familiar with Pallagrello Bianco, Pallagrello Nero and Casavecchia, but hopefully that will change in short order. This set of wines from Vestini Campagnano, a pioneer in working with these grapes, is once again impressive." (04/09)

"Opaque dark ruby. Aromatic red and black cherry fruit aromas are complicated by oregano, bay leaf, nutmeg and flint. Broad, tactile and spicy, with subtle bell pepper and mint flavors adding interest to the red fruits. Boasts fresh acidity and finishes with very good energy and persistence. A slightly more austere version than the 2004, which makes sense given the cooler 2005 vintage in Italy" (07/08)
"Once upon a time... two lawyer friends, who - to relax from their professional activity - had the hobby to research the oenogastronomic traditions of their land and to 'make wine' themselves from the cultivation of a small vineyard, got together and started vinifying the 'pallagrello': an ancient grapevine that produced both black and white grapes and that was, even though in ever diminishing quantities, still cultivated on the Caiatine hills and at the foot of the Matese."
"They obtained a strong and sweet white wine from those ancient vines (called in dialect 'pallarella'...), they liked it very much as they liked the red wine (called 'black' in the area), with its heavy and imperious structure, rich in scents and flavours, excellent for maturing. These vines also had a history of their own and this made them even more interesting. The two lawyers kept on researching tales and legends and found another vine, also cultivated only in the central area of the province of Caserta, in the communes neighbouring Caiazzo. It was the 'casavecchia', that produces a wine that is red with a tendency to purple, full but soft with an exceptional flavour and rich in scents. The small production for a few close friends began to grow, but always in a limited way. Now they could start producing these wines for people who appreciated them and were willing to make a small economic sacrifice to have them. As a result recognition and prizes started coming."
"The hobby had by now been transformed into a small production, for which they formed a company the 'Sviluppo Iniziative Agroindustiali s.r.l.' (S.I.A.), whose partners are the family of the lawyer Barletta and another family, the Quaranta (the family of the other lawyer, Mancini, has left). S.I.A. always has been, and always will be, committed to the development of the 'Vestini Campagnano' company to produce high quality wines, always respectful of traditions and territory - it is also committed to the new ventures they are about to undertake in the wine sector and in the agricultural and food sector in general, to refuse 'omologations' and to keep on discovering productions that have, on one hand, deep roots in the territory from which they come from and, on the other, the cult of quality." - Importer
