Rosso del Vulcano, Macarico

Though this is but a humble IGT Basilicata Rosso, don’t be fooled. It’s 100% Aglianico del Vulture, grown in biodynamically farmed vineyards, hand harvested in the first 10 days of October. The wine undergoes a 6 day maceration-fermentation in stainless steel, then into used oak barriques for 12 months in an underground cellar carved from the tuff soil.

Tasting Notes

The elegant nose is full of fresh red fruit and spice. The palate is rich and full with very fine tannins that give length and persistence.
