  4. Terra di Vulcano Aglianico del Vulture DOC

Basilicata, at the southern extreme of Italy, is a land shrouded in the shadow of Mount Vulture.  This ancient volcano dominates the landscape and characterizes the soil with the ash of past eruptions.  Made from 100% Aglianico, this wine is refined in stainless steel to retain the freshness and character of this indigenous variety.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-garnet in color, pronounced aromas of blackberries and spices complement undertones of forest floor and hints of smoke. On the palate, the wine is harmonious and balanced with soft, round tannins. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with pasta dishes with tomato sauce, pizza, gazpacho, and ash-ripened goat cheeses.
