A deep red colour with purple hues. The Aglianico is a decisive wine with a complex aroma full of notes of red fruits and spices. The taste is intense, full and enveloping. This wine is clear and complex, with enjoyable hints of cherry and red berries fragrance, followed by a marked vanilla and spicy note.
Made in a traditional manner through daily pumping over for the first 3-4 days after the harvest. After this initial phase then follows a lengthy daily pumping until the alcoholic fermentation is accomplished. When the alcoholic fermentation is over, the dÃ©cuvage follows and the skins are softly pressed, in order to obtain the best conditions for the start of the malolactic fermentation. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is racked 2 or 3 times before being transferred partly into steel vats and partly into 500 liters tonneaus for the ageing process.
Aglianico combines very well with all roasted red meats and aged cheeses.
