Hillside vineyards are located in the municipalities of Luogosano, Sant’Angelo all’Esca and Taurasi, 300 metres above sea level. The soil is silty and sandy with limestone and volcanic deposits.  Grapes are harvested by hand, destemmed and undergo a cold maceration for a number of hours.  Alcoholic fermentation is followed by a macera­tion on the skins for one week and at least 16 months ageing in cement tanks. The wine is then aged for at least four months in the bottle before release.
Taste: a beautiful blend of Aglianico and Sangiovese; the fruit is tart and ripe black and red cherry, with damson plum. There is a savoury smoked meat element to the wine with lots of dried leather and white pepper spice. The wine is dry, full bodied with elevated acid and nicely integrated tannin.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or cellar for 10+ years
Food Matching: Enjoy with Pork sausage, game meats, vegetable-based main dishes in rich tomato sauces
