Vigneti del Vulture Aglianico Reserva Piano del Cerro 2011

£17.99

TASTING NOTE

Deep red in colour. Hints of blackberry and blackcurrants mix with spicy, balsamic notes on the nose. Great structure on the palate and a long, persistent finish.

The vineyards belonging to this estate are superb; low-trained and planted on the volcanic soils of the slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 800 metres above sea level. The area is one of Italy`s most remote and poorest, isolated and uncontaminated and according to consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, is like stepping back in time a few centuries.

Grapes are gently crushed and destemmed. The best grapes are then left to ferment in tanks made of fine french wood for about 5-6 months. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for about 15 months and then bottle aged for another 12 months.
