Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 88/100
A Southern Italian wine that punches well above its weight on the price-quality ratio scale. This one is loaded with mocha and dark chocolate on the palate from generous oak aging. Full-bodied and smooth. Finishes with dried herbs and freshness.
Aglianico food pairings: pasta in tomato sauce, vegetarian lasagne, roasted eggplant in rich tomato sauce.
Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Have you ever drank a wine whose grapes grew on volcanic soils???
Well, if not, you must try this one!
Vigneti del Vulture is owned by the Farnese Vini, a young winery that quickly became the leading exporting companies in Southern Italy with a production of nearly 13 million bottles.
The vineyards belonging to this estate sit on the volcanic soils of the slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 800 metres above sea level. The area is one of Italy`s most remote and poorest.
It is made from 100% Aglianico, an Italian varietal that grows in the southern regions of Italy, mostly Basilicata and Campania.
Lovely bright purple color in the glass with enchanting aromas of cherry cake, vanilla, wet black earth and dark cocoa powder.
On the palate, it is deep and evil but in the most scrumptious way! Flavors of cappuccino, black liquorice, dried thyme, juicy ripe black cherries, lovely oak and spice rounded by velvety tannins, refreshing acidity and a lingering chocolaty finish.
This black grape deserves so much more recognition! It is absolute juicy yumminess in a bottle! So easy to drink on its own or a perfect bbq or even picnic wine!
