Background

"Valentino Sciotti (of Vesevo, Gran Sasso and other Farnese estates) took over this small co-operative in Basilicata in Acerenza in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture zone in 2008. Consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, now works with talented youngDennis Verdicchia, and together they managed to capture the character of the grapes and the zone superbly in the bottle." - Mondo Imports

Tasting Note

"This youthful red made from Aglianico grapes grown on the volcanic slopes of Mount Vulture in Basilicata is initially vivid and primary with a floral and pepper fragrance akin to a Northern Rhône Syrah. Flavours of dark cherry fruit are held in check by a streak of volcanic acidity that helps the wine taper to an unusually elegant finish for Aglianico." - Decanter
