    Located on volcanic soils, Aglianico del Vulture is considered the best quality wine region in Basilicata, in Southern Italy.  The signature grape is Aglianico, a variety that exudes class.  It makes firm red wines with great fruit and structure.  Aglianico’s high tannins and acidity, and its ability to age, has inspired some to call it the ‘Barolo of the south’.  The vineyards belonging to this estate are superb: low-trained and planted on the volcanic soils of the slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 600 metres above sea level.

    Deep red in colour, this wine displays hints of blackberry and blackcurrants mixed with spicy, balsamic notes on the nose. It has great structure on the palate and good length on the finish.

    Because of the high acidity, Aglianico goes wonderfully alongside Barbecue sauce. Aglianico begs for rich meats (Beef Brisket, Smoked Pork, Venison, Beef stew, Chilli), with high-fat content to absorb the astringency. Portobello mushrooms, Black Beans.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine.

We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.
