Blend: 100% Aglianico
From: Italy, Paestum IGT
By: Bruno @ Viticoltori De Conciliis
Pure Aglianico grapes, coming from two vineyards (aka Cru) named Cannetiello and Destre. Deep ruby colour, has an intense nose of red plums, black cherries and spicy notes of black pepper. The palate is intense and long with notes of red fruit, jams, blackberry and a smokey finish.
The De Conciliis family ran this winery since 1990, and three brothers are work together in every aspect of the business, the vineyards, cellar and office. Both oil and wine producers, they endeavour to work with maximum respect of both nature and tradition. Bio-dynamically certified, this wine is considered “the family teenager bull”, unpredictable and overindulgent. It represents the complexity of this land, with its gentle and round tannin. it is a good complement for most mead dishes.
