Grifalco-Aglianico del Velture

Introduced to Italy by the Greeks in the 6th century B.C., Aglianico enjoyed an early heyday in the ancient world as one of the key components of Falernum, a wine revered by kings and poets. In the 19th century, after nearly being wiped out by Phylloxera , the grape is now experiencing a great revival in southern Italy.

Vinified in a forward, drinking style with lively flavorful fruit with a deep plummy color with big tannins and firm structure. On the palate the grape offers typical notes of black fruits, smoke, dark chocolate, and mineral. #les-sommeliers
