Aglianico del Vulture

MOTTURA Aglianico del Vulture

A wine made from a variety of grape imported from Classical Greece, one of the most ancient grapes in Italy. Grown on hilly land of volcanic origin in the Vulture, in the province of Potenza, the grapes are harvested by hand when just ripe and fermented with 10-12 days of skin contact at a controlled temperature of 20°C with constant pumping-over and delestage. Malolactic fermentation in steel. Ruby red in colour with hints of garnet, with an ample bouquet containing hints of wild berry and almond and a slightly tannic, dry, full-bodied flavour.
