The choice of the youngest of our cru wines came from tastings of the individual vinifications from various vineyards developed for that purpose.
It’s a vineyard of 2.6 hectares and about 15 years old, with lots of small springs, from which we obtain a precise, immediate and intriguing wine. With a production of about 7,000 kilos per hectare, more generous than the company average, the result is a less concentrated grape with a pleasant juiciness and fruitiness. Its exuberance is immediately striking, but it does not lack the characteristic structure and tannins that are so typical of Aglianico.
This is a wine that succeeds in debunking the myth that Aglianico is a harsh, demanding grape, revealing the beauty and spontaneity obtained by releasing the fruit and the territory from the weight of the cultural vision attached to them in the vineyards and the wineries of the late 1990s. No over-ripening of the grapes, a light hand with the extracts and with the use of wood…resulting in a more spontaneous, light-hearted Aglianico.
Deep ruby-red in colour, the wine expresses all the character of Aglianico. Its nose evokes sensations of black and red berries, barely ripe, and sweet spices such as cinnamon and incense. It is rich on first impressions on the palate, but with a refined finish, with lingering notes of sweet spices and liquorice.
In the words of the wine-makers themselves: “Immediate and bragging, like a young man who’s a bit of a big mouth. Sincere and entertaining, it’s a wine to thrill the tastebuds, never dull, and with a delicious elegance.”
