Hand selected from the south of Italy

Intense ruby red color. The flavor is full and complex, offering fruity aromas of cherry, strawberry and wild berries balanced by roasted coffee, chocolate, and hints of herbs and tobacco.

Some have said that Aglianico may be the wine variety “with the longest consumer history of all,” since its roots can be traced back to ancient Greece.

Vineyard History

"Volcanic Vines"

The geological structure of the slopes of Vesuvius, the unique characteristics of the volcanic soil and the lovely microclimate make Campania one of the most interesting wine regions of Italy. The area has a great tradition of wine growing with much potential still to be fully developed.
