Tasty Aglianico wine from the Italian quality winery Antonio Caggiano from Campania . One of the top wineries we like to associate our name with! That is why this beautiful winery has been included in our Grandcru wines exclusive range.
A beautiful red wine with the characteristics of the Aglianico grape. This Tauri Aglianico Dell'Irpinia is made from vines that grow in Taurasi. The vineyards there are located about 350 meters above sea level, and are surrounded by an atmosphere of folklore, age-old traditions, historic architecture and religion. The city of Taurasi has a historic city center with amazing architectural delights and ancient works of art. Old churches and chapels beautify the area with its many folkloric festivals and traditions. Taurasi is an important wine center for the region. The soil of the vineyards is a mixture of clay and limestone.
The grapes for this wine are always harvested quite late in the season, around the end of October, beginning of November. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. The wine ages in barriques for a period of about 4 to 6 months, depending on the grapes.
The wine is a beautiful ruby red in color and has a wonderful scent of red forest fruits and black plums. Super taste due to the excellent combination of herbs & fruit and pleasant tannins. For an Aglianico wine, the wine has a soft taste with a long finish in which hints of dark pepper and green chili are nicely present. Delicious to drink immediately, but storing for a few years makes this wine even tastier. The 2017 vintage has been awarded 92/100 Points by James Suckling. He ends his review with: "This is a gorgeous young aglianico."
Combines very well with dishes with fine beef or lamb. Also tastes great with pasta dishes.
