LIKOS AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE DOC
Aglianico del Vulture DOC Grape variety: Aglianico cultivated in our vineyards on the slopes of Monte Vulture using organic management methods. Terroir: Altitude of around 400 m above sea level; hillside topography; volcanic clay soils rich in nutrients. Deep ruby red colour. The nose demonstrates mature fruits of the forest aromas as well as ripe cherry, floral nuances of violet and spicy notes of vanilla, nutmeg, black pepper and clove. Echoes of resin, cinchona, balsam, coffee and chocolate appear, followed by mineral and smoky waves. The wine is warming, austere, structured, full-bodied and even rigorous as it develops on the palate. The tannins are well managed. The wine is smooth, fresh, pleasant, elegant and wrapped in folds of finesse. Excellent balance between fruit and oak with neither dominating. The finish is persistent and rewarding.
Try it with red meats and the local Basilicata cheese canestrato di Moliterno, but also with dark chocolate…
