Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 65% Aglianico + 25% Cabernet Sauvignon + 10% Syrah
From: Italy, Castel del Monte DOC
Aglianico graoes are blended with some Cabernet Sauvignon and even Syrah for a rather unique taste. Harvested from the Bocca di Lupo estate where the soil is chalky and stoney which provides good levels of mineralogy and acidity. The nose is intense with red berry fruits, floral notes of violets with some sweet spices at the end. The palate is soft and balanced with a wide range of aromas ranging from the red berries to clove. Long lasting finish.
Puglia is a region known for its beauty, food, tradition and coastal landscapes. Often its hilly landscapes are overlooked and left undiscovered. In particular the plateau of Murge, which at about 300 meters a.s.l is perfect wine making territory. Harsh cold winters and cool summers with varying temperatures between day and night.
Taster’s Review “Nice, smooth drinking wine. Would pair nicely with any good meal. Not as bold as Cab Sav. a really enjoyably wine.”
