Wine Description

The Phoenician introduced the Aglianico in Italy from Greece and in particular from the Eubea, several centuries before Christ. From this “Ancient Vine” is produced a wine which was praised by Paolo III, the Pope. It is produced with Aglianico grapes used at 100% in the DOC area in Molise at Ramitello and Contrada Camarda at 100 meters above the sea level. The soil is mostly clay and sandy which give to the wine a great mineral and structured taste. The harvest takes place at the end of October and ends in the first decade of November. The wine making process starts with the maceration of the peels on must for 1 month. The malolactic fermentation takes place naturally. Finally the maturing takes place a part in oak barrels of little and medium size and the other part in steel tanks and then for 6 months in bottles.
