Aglianico del Vulture from Lorenzo Piccin of San Martino.
Lorenzo Piccin.


The San Martino wines came to our attention through our friend Nico at La Stoppa. We weren't necessarily looking for a winery from this area and really didn't know what to expect when we accepted to meet proprietor Lorenzo Piccin at our office. As he points out himself, people think of Aglianico and wines from the south of Italy as big, thick alcohol bombs: not exactly our specialty. But Denyse, Kevin and I were all impressed with what we tasted: deep, structured red wines that still manage to capture the finesse and elegance of a cool climate region. We also very much appreciated Lorenzo, a young, charming, charismatic and clearly passionate guy.


This interview with Lorenzo Piccin took place in March, 2020.
