Aglianico is a full-bodied red wine which is found almost exclusively in Southern Italy in the regions of Campania and Basilicata. This indigenous grape was brought into this area by the Greeks in the first century BC.
After the grapes are harvested, they are left to macerate on the skins for 12-15 days. The grapes are periodically stirred during this period to obtain optimal extraction of the anthocyanins and tannins contained in the skins. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed in stainless-steel vats, then the wine is transferred to barriques for 6 months. After bottling it matures for a further 5-6 months before release.
Aglianico Beneventano IGT by Lapilli has inviting aromas of black cherry, blackberry, ripe plum with a hint of spice. This is an elegant wine which has great fruit purity and a lovely smooth mouthfeel.
