Antica Masseria "Sigillo Campano" Aglianico, 2017
Aglianico is a thick skinned, high tannin grape typically cultivated in Southern Italy region of Campania. This expression of Aglianico by Antica Masseria is super approachable, with the tannins artfully softened and allowing us to enjoy a smooth rendition of this tough grape. Dark fruit and black plum mingle with a hint of clove. The smooth palate finishes with the tannins you'd expect from this varietal. Vineyards are 550m above sea level, with great diurnal swings and soil influenced by Mt. Vesuvius.
