Aglianico del Vulture
Denominazione di Origine Controllata
The evolution of this wine in a wooden cask gives it a ruby colour that turns to garnet with aging. The 100% Aglianico vines are located on medium-volcanic soil at about 500m a.s.l. in the towns of Ripacandida and Maschito.
The aging process guarantees an exceptional harmony.
Following the completion of the harvest between the 15th and 30th of October, the grapes are subjected to alcoholic fermentation in cement fermenters for about 10 days. Following the completion of the racking and after a period of maturation, the wine is moved into barrels where it remains for at least 18 months.
Colour, Bouquet, Flavour
As a result of the aging process, the intense ruby-red colour turns to garnet. The vine typically produces bouquets of berries which are dry and full, in which the animated flavour of young tannins produces an exceptional blend over the years.
