Aglianico, brought to Southern Italy by the Greeks, is the most important and representative grape variety of Southern Italy. It is a complex vine that requires great attention and knowledge for its processing. It gives life to the prized red wines of Southern Italy, often called the ‘Nebbiolo of the South’. The harvest is carried out strictly by hand, the grapes placed in boxes and transported to the cellar, where they are selected during the destemming phase.

The aromas of Aglianico are enriched with warm notes of vanilla. The tannins soften to the delight of the palate. Volume, roundness and length, maintaining the characteristic acidity and dryness.

Magnificent ruby ​​red color. Intense nose of cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry, with hints of sweet spices of cinnamon, black pepper, wet earth and dark chocolate. Fine, warm and enveloping sip with elegant and balanced tannins in a softness completed by a pleasant freshness on the finish. Ideal for tasty first courses, long-cooked red meats, semi-mature and mature cheeses. Aged 6 months in steel then 12 months in barrique.
