Appearing a shimmering red with purplish highlights, this Aglianico offers intense, long-lingering impressions of spice, wild blackberries, and ripe red berryfruit. The palate is warm, full-bodied, and velvet-smooth. This full-volumed wine, modern in style, demonstrates in an appealing and convincing fashion its intimate bond with its terroir of origin.

After the clusters are de-stemmed and pressed, the must is cold-macerated, then ferments for some 20 days at 20oC. The wine is then drawn off and completes the malolactic fermentation.
In stainless steel, then a traditional stay in large ovals, followed by some 3 months’ bottle ageing.
