Aglianico IGT Campania 2014

75cl Il Cancelliere Aglianico Italy > Campania Spicy, robust and punchy
Il Cancelliere's Aglianico is full flavoured, fresh and aromatic. It is dense ruby/purple in colour with floral aromas and flavours of ripe berries and spicy/smoky characters from limited oak ageing.

Situated on the clay slopes of Montemarano, a small village in the Irpinia area of Campania, just east of Naples, lies Il Cancelliere Azienda Vitivinicola di Pizza Rita. The winery is run by Soccorso Romano and his wife Pasqualina and their son Enrico. The Romano family have been growing grapes and making wine here for over 150 years. Il Cancelliere grows only Aglianico and produces approximately 20,000 bottles a year of both Irpinia Aglianico and Taurasi wines. 

"The Aglianico IGP is dynamic, lean and fresh; good precision, tannins and alcohol are well integrated. Its X-factor is the extreme drinkability, powered by its acid spine. There are notes of dark fruit, dried violets and some coffee. An ideal partner for all kinds of barbequed meats."
