    A Contemplative Wine for Cold Winter Evenings

    Vigneti del Vulture, `Piano del Cerro` Aglianico del Vulture is deep red in colour, and displays hints of blackberry and blackcurrants mixed with spicy, balsamic notes on the nose. On the palate, the wine is highly intense with full-bodied, almost velvety tannins. The characteristic acidity of the grape variety is well-integrated, enhancing the spicy aromatic profile, with balsamic notes coming to the forefront.

    Food Pairing: Braised dishes such as veal cheeks with red cabbage and dumplings. 

    STORY BEHIND THIS WINE: 

    Located in the heart of Basilicata in the Aglianico del Vulture cultivation zone, approximately 150 km east of Naples, is the town of Acerenza. Here, the young winery Vigneti del Vulture, born from the collapse of a local cooperative, is situated. The meticulously maintained vineyards, at an altitude of up to 80 meters above sea level, predominantly cultivate local grape varieties. An example of this is the 'Piano del Cerro,' which is 100% Aglianico, known as the Barolo of the South. After a gentle harvest, destemming, and manual sorting, the must ferments or macerates in wooden vats for 5-6 months. Subsequently, the wine is pressed and aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. Following this extended maturation period, the wine is bottled and rests for an additional 12 months to harmonize and mature.
