harvest note

Harvest 2016 started off mild in the spring, leading to a budding early of about 10 days. Discontinuous periods followed, characterized by sudden drops in temperature and frequent rains, which took to the recovery on the vegetative activity. May through June saw abundant rainfalls which caused an increase in the mildew risk, making the management of vineyards more challenging and demanding. However, focused attention and prevention led to healthy grapes which produced wines of usual quality and longevity. The flowering took place between the end of May and the beginning of June.

tasting note

Appearing a shimmering red with purplish highlights, this Aglianico offers intense, long-lingering impressions of spice, wild blackberries, and ripe red berryfruit. The palate is warm, full-bodied, and velvet-smooth. This full-volumed wine, modern in style, demonstrates in an appealing and convincing fashion its intimate bond with its terroir of origin.

food pairing
