Cantina di Venosa Terre di Orazio Aglianico del Vulture DOP

2018

In a Nutshell

A richly flavoured and unusually accessible red from the notoriously tannic Aglianico grape.

Tasting Notes

A warm and richly-flavoured, oak-aged, Aglianico with aromas of ripe black fruit, cassis and smoky notes. The generous palate is packed full of red and black berry fruits, with layers of spicy oak and mocha, and balancing bright acidity. Concentrated, with a good depth of flavour, and chunky yet supple tannins.

Production Notes

The Aglianico grapes are grown near Venosa, mid-way between Naples and Bari. They are sourced from a selection of older vineyards, hand-harvested into 12-15 kg crates. The grapes are picked in the early morning and immediately transported to the cellar to maintain quality. Temperature-controlled fermentation (23-28ºC) in stainless steel takes place for around 10 days, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 15 months in a mixture of small, 25hl French and Slavonian oak casks.
