AGLIANICO 2008

FOGGIA, PUGLIA, ITALY

100% AGLIANICO

Ancient grape variety dating back to the Greek settlers. Deep ruby hue with an intense and complex bouquet of ripe fruit, sharp forest berries, warm cumin spice with leather and vanilla. Rich and velvety with a balanced elegant tannin. Full of character and needing time to breathe to open up the tight firm grip to the wine. Great with meats and game, but also with aged pecorino cheeses as well.
