Region: Campania, Italy
A grape of great tradition, Aglianico is considered to be one of the most noble and important varieties in the South of Italy. This historic region of the Apennine countryside is known as Irpinia and it has a unique terroir and climate in which vineyards coexist with fruit trees, olives and aromatic herbs. The wine is savoury and herbal with notes of thyme, lavender and hints of black liquorice. Textured, beautifully sustained, smoky and robust.
