Aglianico

Born of ashes.

Called the "Barolo of the South", the Aglianico shares its distinctive acidity and gripping tannins with the Barolo grape, Nebbiolo. And, similar to the Piemontese, this red Southern-Italian variety possesses an impressive aging potential. The best grow in volcanic soil, in the foothills of the extinct Mount Vulture in the Basilicata region, and in Taurasi in Campania, at the foot of the active Mount Vesuvius. Here, the Aglianico has long been at home. It can thank the Spanish for its name, as they ruled this stretch of land in the 15th and 16th centuries. They called it the wine from the plane, or “llano” in Spanish. When young, the Aglianico appears dark and concentrated with aromas of chocolate and plums, as well as mineral notes. After a few years of maturity, it surprises with an elegant stature one would not expect from the young muscleman.
