LE22 Italian Aglianico Barbera (with Grape Skins)
Release Date: April 2023
The Region: Campania, Italy
Winemaking is an ancient art here with history dating back to the 12th century BC. Sitting on the southwestern coast of Italy, Campania has 350kms of coastline and a mountainous interior comprised of the Campanian volcanic arc, which includes Mount Vesuvius. The long growing season is hot and dry with abundant sunshine; breezes blow in from the Tyrrhenian Sea and temper the heat, promoting acidity in the grapes. The volcanic soils encourage high tannin.
The Wine: Aglianico Barbera
Aglianico is considered one of the three greatest Italian varietals, known to produce refined, complex wines with firm tannin. Its richness and structure make it popular for blending. In contrast, Barbera is popular for producing fruity wines with low tannin and high acidity. The combination of these two Italian varietals creates a balanced blend with big personality. Dominant flavors of black cherry, pepper spice, blackberry and plum are enhanced with licorice, dried herbs, and a light mineral note. This is a wine to sit back, sip, and savor.
