Valentino Sciotti (of Vesevo, Gran Sasso and other Farnese estates) took over this small co-operative in Basilicata in Acerenza in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture zone in 2008.
Consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, now works with talented youngDennis Verdicchia, and together they managed to capture the character of the grapes and the zone superbly in the bottle. MONDO IMPORTS

Drinkability is the key feature though it comes with more that a spot of complexity. There is always a dusty, earthy coal like character to Aglianico and this wine captures it perfectly. Dark fruits and with a slightly meaty edge this in the broodier side of things. But don't get us wrong the nice, grippy tannins give the wine a lovely buoyancy and snap. This is great example of this underrated variety. PWS
