Description

Aglianico Beneventano IGP 12.5% (Red)

Farming of the grapes: This wine is obtained from Aglianico grape, grown in limestone-clay soils at an altitude of 150-350 m.a.s.l. Located on the slopes of the Regional Park of Taburno-Camposauro. An espalier farming system is employed giving a yield of 180 hectares from wines with an average age of 15 years. The harvest takes place during the month of October.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and conferred to the winery. There follows the de-stemming and soft pressing. The vinification is carried out by maceration with the skins, which are continuously re-submerged into the must for 10 days. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged in large oak casks for at least 6 months, finalising with maturation in the bottle.
