Aglianico

Aglianico is a high-quality Italian grape sometimes compared to Barolo for its intense and complex style. It offers naturally high acidity, flavors of black fruits and high tannins that, along with full body, make Aglianico wines good candidates for aging in oak. Aglianico thrives in the volcanic soils of Italy’s southern wine regions Basilicata, where it makes the famed Aglianico del Vulture wine, and Campania where Taurasi is a renowned example.
