The Aglianico of Vulture has very remote origins, and people think it has been brought by the Greeks in the south of Italy between the VII and the VI century b.C. One of the historical and literary evidences of the history of this wine variety is the one left by Quintus Horatius Flaccus, a Latin poet who was born in Venosa, who exalted the beauty of his land (Basilicata) and of its wine.
Wine variety: Aglianico of Vulture.
Soil: medium consistency -total surface area of 4 hectares-, the vineyard is 35 years old.
Pruning: spurred cordon.
Grape harvest period: end of October; rigorously manually operated.
Vinification: traditional red vinification; manual harvest in plastic boxes. The grapes are manually selected while scanned on a vibrating band; the bunches are pressed while stalks are gently separated from the must. The peeled must is brought in temperature-controlled fermenters; the fermentation process lasts about 15 days at constant temperature (approximately 28°). During the whole fermentation process 3 daily assemblies are carried out. At the end of the fermentation process, thanks to pressing operations, the wine is first analytically checked and then poured in a steel tank, where it will stand for about 2 months. The wine will later be put in new wooden barrels (tonneaux), where it will undergo malolactic fermentation and refinement for approximately 18 months in wood. Then the processes of pre-bottling can be operated.
Analytical data: 14% alcoholic content -total acidity 5.80 g\l- ph 3.35.
Food and wine pairing: TRADITIONAL PAIRING WITH SAUCES AND MEATS; TRY IT WITH LEG OF LAMB ON A BED OF PEPPERS AND DRIED TOMATOES.
