Vigneti del Vulture Piano del Cerro Aglianico del Vulture 2016 (Aglianico)
- View: Intense ruby red with violet glints.
- Nose: An alluringly sweet scent reminiscent of balsamic vinegar and honey with notes of ripe dark fruits and warming spices.

APPELLATION: Aglianico del Vulture
VINEYARD: Vigneti del Vulture. These Aglianico grapes were grown at 600 meters above sea level among the rolling hills of Basilicata, Italy. The north-eastern part of the region is characterized by nearby extinct volcanoes, which makes the soil rich in potassium, ideal for the Aglianico variety. Vigneti del Vulture is part of the Fantini Group Farnese, which was voted best wine producer in Italy in 2016, 2017, and 2019.
AGEING: Matured in new barriques, where malolactic fermentation occurs, for 2 years. Will cellar well through 2027.
PREPARATION: The grapes are double-sorted to ensure pure quality, then de-stemmed. Vinification takes place in small wood vats, with maceration for 25-30 days and manual pump-overs every 6 hours.
PAIRING: Beef, lamb, pastas with meaty red sauces, goat cheese.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 18-20ºC
