Details

Drink now through to 2028. No need to decant before serving.

This magnificent Aglianico begins life in one of Italy’s remotest corners in the region of Basilicata. The Vigneti del Vulture estate’s vines are planted on the slopes of Mount Vulture at up to 800 metres above sea level where the volcanic soils give a unique flavour profile to their stunning wines. Thanks to a combination of hot, very dry summers with very little rainfall and the altitude which helps to cool things down a little, the estate’s Aglianico vines produce incredibly concentrated grapes with a perfect balance between bold flavour profile and balancing freshness.

Following the harvest in the autumn the grapes are carefully selected for quality and vinified at the winery on the estate. The finest grapes are fermented in French oak casks for up to six months before being left to mature for a further 24 months in the oak barrels.

The result is a bold, powerful Aglianico which captivates the senses with intense hints of ripe blackberries, blueberries and dark cherries along with black pepper notes. On the palate the entry is incredibly soft and smooth with fine tannins and a generous full body. Rich dark berry flavours dominate the palate along with a subtle acidity and a very long finish. This is a wine which is ideal to drink now with hearty red meat dishes or can be stored in the cellar for another decade or so.
