TASTE
On the nose, a delightful blend of black fruit and summer flowers. Very elegant on the palate, with refined structure framing the same delicious characters found on the nose. Soft yet lively on the finish, this is a particularly civilised Aglianico.

FOOD PAIRING 
Red sauces, grilled and roasted meats, strong cheese.

PRODUCER
Based in Ponte, near Benevento, this family-owned producer celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010. The grandson of the original founder has run the business since the 1970s alongside winemaker Luigi Pastore, whose own son Nicola heads up marketing and export. They pioneered organic viticulture in the area, starting in 1984, and remain one of the most innovative Campanian wine producers.

VINEYARD
This Aglianico was hand-picked from southwest-facing, predominantly chalky slopes 200-400 metres above sea level. The grapes were grown organically.

WINERY
Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in wooden vats, after which the wine was transferred to barriques for six months’ ageing. It was then racked to stainless steel for a further three years, during which it harmonised and softened, before bottling.
