Aglianico del Vulture, Basilicata, Italy - Aglianico grape produced from the top vineyards on the eastern slope of Monte Vulture, an extinct volcano. Perfumed and flavorful with overtones of dark cherry, tobacco, violets, and coffee. Serve with BBQ, roasted meats or rich stews.
Brilliant ruby red with slight transparency. To the nose, red fruit perfumes are balanced by fresh plum. On the palace, there is a crisp frizzante character leading to a complex fruit finish and a semi-sweet linger.
