About Azienda Agricola Musto Carmelitano

By Paul Caputo

Musto Carmelitano is a name you are going to hear again. Admiration for their two single vineyard wines has been gathering in the press and it is only a matter of time before this young producer of Aglianico del Vulture is a regular reference point for any commentary on quality winemaking in the South of Italy.

Francesco Musto Carmelitano presided over the family vineyards and sold his fruit to the local co-operative but like many other estates in recent years, a new generation has taken over and brought a wealth of new ideas to the firm.

In just five vintages, his children Elisabetta and Luigi have earned a number of positive reviews for their wines and even secured a listing with Berry Bros & Rudd, one of London’s most prestigious merchants.
