Friday Night Wine Tasting - Quartum Store - Quarto (Na)

My Friday Night Wine Tasting series is back.  And for the Spring cycle, I have decided to focus on Campi Flegrei wineries in the Naples area.  Last Friday's choice was  Quartum Cantine di Criscio located in Quarto (Na).   When I first visited their Quartum Store a little over a month ago, I knew it would be the perfect place for a Fridayvisit.  After a tour of their winery, we were treated to their Asprinio Vino Spumante Metedo Charmat paired with mozarella di bufala DOP, ricotta, and various salamis. We tasted their Aglianico in two versions, a rosè and a full blooded red which spends 9 months in barrique and at least 4 months in the bottle.  Cheese with an organic marmalade from Casa Barone, bruschetta with olive oil from Azienda Agricola Meoli, and torroncini from La Provenzale played their part as well.  Besides having a comfortable space to wine taste, Quartum Store is just that...a store where you can shop not only for Quartum's wines, but products throughout Campania that they believe in.  
I noticed a really cool hand crafted key chain...I'll be back...
