The Phoenicians brought Aglianico to Italy from Greece and mainly from Eubea, many centuries before Christ was born. This "Ancient Vine" produced Pope Paul III's favourite wine. The wine has a ruby red colour with a slight hint of orange, a winy bouquet, ample and intense with hints of ripe fruit. Mellow and velvety, it is very harmonic, full-bodied and with just the right tannic content and hints of almonds. Ideal with savoury foods, starters, game and cheese.
Aromatic, offering dark cherry, blackberry, licorice and espresso notes, which expand with hints of pine and spice. Drink now. 6,700 cases made.
The 2009 Aglianico del Molise Contado impresses for its density, balance and depth. Hints of smoke and tar add complexity to the rich, powerful fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.
