Product Description:

"Aglianico is deep, intense ruby purple in color. This hearty red wine has rich aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrants and blackberries along with spicy notes of cocoa and smoke. The tannins are ripe, soft and make for a long, full-bodied texture yet balanced by good acidity which gives it a true sense of finesse (velvet). This robust red is a perfect match with grilled or braised red meat, osso buco, hearty legume-based soups and medium-aged herbed cheeses.

Aglianico from Campania is sometimes called ‘the Barolo of the South, not because it tastes like Barolo but because it is age-worthy and regal like Barolo. Brought to the region by the Greeks as far back as 800 BC, Aglianico thrives on the volcanic soils of Campania.

The name ‘Red Velvet’ was chosen to represent the deep color of aglianico and the organoleptic characteristics of the wine, soft and smooth on the palate as velvet is to the touch." -Importer
