IRPINIA AGLIANICO DOC

85% Aglianico, 15% Merlot

Production area
Hillside vineyards in the municipalities of Luogosano, Sant’ Angelo all’Esca and Taurasi.

Vinification
The grapes are picked by hand, with selection taking place first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. After de-stemming, there is a pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for about ten days. The wine is aged for 24 months in concrete tanks with a further six months’ ageing in bottle before release.

Tasting note
Colour: Intense ruby red.
Aroma: Cherry and blackberry aromas with hints of black pepper and bitter cocoa, upon a pleasant background of sweet spices.
Taste: Soft, with elegant tannins and a lingering finish recalling fruits of the forest, cherry and spicy notes.

Food pairing
Particularly well-suited to appetisers of cold mates and cheeses, pasta with sauce, roast meat dishes and pizza with rich sauces and flavours. Best served at a temperature of 16-18°C.
