Aglianico has been cultivated from time immemorial on the plateau around the extinct Mount Vulture volcano. Frederick II of Swabia had a particular fondness for this land as shown by the stupendous castles that are still perfectly preserved here today. Since Swabian times, this generous wine has celebrated King Manfred, fearless warrior son of the Emperor. Re Manfredi Aglianico del Vulture doc, the company’s representative wine, comes from a 52-hectare vineyard located at 420 m a.s.l. in land of volcanic origin in the Commune of Venosa. It is the wine that best interprets the characteristics of Aglianico del Vulture. Worked pure with fermentations using natural yeasts at low temperatures, it ages in French barriques that endow it with light hints of vanilla and thyme.
The colour is an intense deep ruby while the bouquet is ample, with dominant notes of bitter cherry, candied fruit, aromatic herbs and distant hints of vanilla and thyme. The flavour has an exceptional powerful and imperious personality, with warm elegant undertones of spices and cream. This is a wine with marked minerality and flavour, characteristics that give it extraordinary balance and drinkability.
Red meats, game and mature cheeses.
