Aglianico Del Vulture
Sourced from the Serra del Prete vineyard.
Manually harvested from 45 year old vines. Certified organic.
20 day maceration in stainless steel. Fermented using a selected yeast from their Serra del Prete vineyard. A pied de cuvee is made from that yeast and then used to start the fermentation.
Aged six months in stainless steel followed by six months in cement before bottling. The wine is not fined but is passed through a large-grained filter to remove any exceptionally large particulates.
Good ruby-red. Lovely scented aromas of raspberry, Asian spices and lavender. Supple but bright, displaying a silky of texture to the red fruit and sweet spice flavors. Finishes long and graceful.
