Outstanding Aglianico! Big and chewy tannins, but not overpowering. Dark Cherries, spices and black pepper on the nose. Cherries, smoke, leather and tar on the pallet. Velvety texture. Very impressive. Thank you John P.

Full disclosure, I am a big Aglianico fan, so I might be a little biased! The 100% Aglianico grapes for this wine are grown on the hills of Taurasi in Campania at 450 meters above sea level. The fertile soils are rich in minerals and volcanic ash and calcium, giving this wine some of its distinctive character. Pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature, maceration on the skins for 20 days and malolactic fermentation in barrique rounds out vinification. The wine is aged for 3 months in steel and 24 months in French barriques. Sampled after 3 hours in a decanter, this wine has character and an elegant boldness. The nose reveals dark cherry, spice and a little pepper. On the palate it is full bodied, with black cherry, tobacco, black pepper, leather and I hate say it, tar. The tannins are well balanced but still show layers of complexity. A lovely elegant wine that should continue to develop over the next 7-10 years. An absolute lovely example of a well made Aglianico from Nativ.
