Cantina Tombacco Aglianico del Beneventano, 2016
Scarcely known outside southern Italy , but Aglianico is one of Italy’s noble grapes which ranks alongside Barolo in quality and why it is often referred to as the Barolo of the south.
A dark, deep ruby red with clear purple tones. This structured wine is complex with enjoyable hints of cherry and red berry notes, followed by a marked vanilla and spicy note. Elegant, warm and full-bodied, this wine has a good length and persistence that leaves an enjoyable soft sensation on the palate.
