Basilicata, at the southern extreme of Italy, is a land shrouded in the shadow of Mount Vulture. This ancient volcano dominates the landscape and characterizes the soil with the ash of past eruptions. Made from 100% Aglianico, this wine is refined in stainless steel to retain the freshness and character of this indigenous variety.
A ripe juicy Aglianico with perfumed black cherry, blackberry and olives on the nose. The palate is soft and fresh with a good balance between savoury, ripe tannins and dark ever so slightly bitter fruits.
Intense ruby-garnet in color, pronounced aromas of blackberries and spices complement undertones of forest floor and hints of smoke. On the palate, the wine is harmonious and balanced with soft, round tannins.
Pair this wine with pasta dishes with tomato sauce, pizza, gazpacho, and ash-ripened goat cheeses.
