2015 Di Majo Norante Contado Aglianico Riserva


Current stock: 8

PRIMA Notes:  The wine is 100% Aglianico, perhaps the best red wine variety of southern Italy, hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel and aged in a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. After harvest, and prior to fermentation, the must goes through a period of maceration, or cold soak, in order to extract the optimal color and flavor that is so generous on the palate. The wine displays the rugged earthiness of Aglianico, not unlike a ripe Zinfandel from California, but manages to keep all that flavor in check with a wonderful balance of tannin and acidity.
