Aglianico del Vulture DOCG Superiore
First among the Norman brothers arrived in Venosa in the eleventh century, Drogone d’Altavilla (Drogo of Hauteville) started a good phase for the city from the economic, cultural and agricultural point of view. Under this same period the Abbey of Santissima Trinità got strengted and the “Incompiuta” project (unfinished extension) was started.
Grape variety: Aglianico del Vulture.
Area of production: contrada l’Iscone in the district of Venosa, grapes are sourced from a parcel of Liscone vineyard planted in 1964.
Tasting Notes: intense ruby red with garnet highlights, a great intensity, complexity and dynamicity on the nose. The taste shows a lovely fruit, depth, integrated oak and velvety tannins. Lingering and fascinating fruit finish.
Alcohol Content: 14,00-14,50 %vol.
Winemaking: a long fermentation-maceration takes place in a small open top stainless steel tank. Each day, during the fermentation, the cap is plunged several times to extract colour, tannins and flavour. An extended maturation and 24 months of aging in French oak has soften the tannins and gives an elegant, rich complexity to the flavour.
