Product Description:

"Aglianico from Campania is sometimes called 'the Barolo of the South', not because it tastes like Barolo but because it is ageworthy & regal like Barolo. Brought to the region by the Greeks as far back as 800 BC: the name comes from the Greek Ellenico. Aglianico is deep, intense ruby purple in color. This hearty red wine has rich aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrants & blackberries along with spicy notes of cocoa & smoke. The tannins are ripe, soft & make for a long, full-bodied texture yet balanced by good acidity which gives it a true sense of finesse. This robust red is a perfect match with grilled or braised red meat, osso buco, hearty legume-based soups & medium-aged herbed cheeses". Importer
