In Naples and other southern Italian towns, a red wine of Aglianico grape is a staple of the dining table. Fruity with blueberry, dark honey with velvety tannins, and elegant lightness, say like Pinot Noir, allow it to pair well even with seafood. Aglianico grown at steep, black volcanic slopes of Mt. Vulture in northern Basilicata is particularly prized for its superior quality. Upon inheriting the estate, Gerardo took aim at restoring the ancient glory to the wines of the Vulture. Together with his wife and famed enologist Luigi Muoio, they restructured the winery to become the internationally recognized superstar they are today. “One of the finest Aglianicos I have ever tasted.” – Robert Parker, Jr.
Food Pairing: pizza, red meats, game, charcuterie, hard cheese.
