    Irpinia Aglianico DOC

    The Irpinian territory owes its peculiarities to the particular pedoclimatic condition, which is also influenced by the volcanic activity of Vesuvius, making it suitable for the cultivation of native grape varieties, among which Aglianico stands out for its diffusion and quality. It is considered the monarch of the region's viticulture, capable of producing wines with great personality and an extraordinary aptitude for aging. Yet, its versatility allows for experimenting with more agile and graceful winemaking processes, with shorter macerations and less aging, resulting in elegant and refined wines, as evidenced by this Irpinia Aglianico DOC.
