Vigneti del Vulture, Pipoli Aglianico del Vulture 2020
Region: Acerenza, Basilicata, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
This wine is bright ruby red in colour, with violet reflections. On the nose, there are intense aromas of cherry, and sour black cherry. Full-bodied, this wine has a sweet red fruit character with delicate oak nuances of vanilla and spice on the long finish..
The estate vineyards are trained low and planted on volcanic soils on the slopes of Mount Vulture, at an altitude of up to 800 metres above sea level. According to the consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, the area is isolated and just like stepping back in time.
Valentino Sciotti (of Farnese) took over this small co-operative in Acerenza, in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture zone, in 2008. Consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini works with the talented Danilo Gizzi to capture the character of the grapes, and area, in the finished wine.
