A wine made from very old Aglianico vines, some grown over 50 years ago. After the clusters are de- stemmed and pressed, the must is cold-macerated, then ferments for some 20 days at 68°F. The wine is then drawn off and completes the malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, then a traditional stay in large ovals, followed by some 3 months’ bottle ageing. Rich in sandy clays, quartz sandstones, and fossil beds.
