Description

VINIFICATION
The grapes are harvested in a slight over-ripening (first decade of November) and vinified according to the traditional method of long maceration, 40/60 days in a vitrified concrete tank, with frequent daily punching down, during fermentation, and filled with the skins for the remaining period. After racking, two or three decantations are carried out three or four days apart to obtain a rough decantation before going into barriques for a long aging process that lasts for about 24 months. The decanting from the barriques is followed by bottling without filtration.

TASTE PROFILE
Inpenetrable wine with an intense red with garnet hints, the nose is incredibly intense with aromas ranging from intense fruity to a delicate spicy and aromatic herbs To the taste is rich, very warm and extremely harmonious to be a pure Aglianico, the aging in wood makes it extremely long and changeable as it oxygenates in the glass.

PAIRING
For the character and the winemaking technique, decanting is necessary. Ideally pair with red meat dishes, stews, excellent with aged cheeses, blue cheeses, and in company with dried fruit and chocolate.

AGING
Keep the bottle in vertical position at a temperature of 18° max. Keep it faraway from light and hot places.
