Organoleptic characteristics: straw-yellow with greenish
tinges. Intense bouquet. Suave, round, lingering taste pleasing blend of
floral and honeyed (but not sweet) flavors. The flavors and acidity are, in
well-made specimens, elegantly balanced. It is interesting that some
descriptions have it as a notably high-acid wine, while other reviewers
describe it as soft and moderate to low in acid; presumably those are simply
the results of different vinification methods.
A touch of Salt…yep because it is close to sea.
Grape Variety: 80% Aglianico, 10%
Sangiovese, 10% Merlot Organoleptic characteristics: intense ruby red color,
powerfully aromatic with notes of dark cherries, prunes and roasted chestnuts.
Dense plum and dark
cherry flavors lead this Aglianico before
yielding to notes of ground coffee,
candied citrus peels and clove spices as it
develops on the tongue.
Serve with: fist
courses, roasted meat, game.
