Aglianico originating from the Compania region of Italy. Aglianico is big wine, dark, full bodied rich, with high tannins and high acidity which makes it an excellent aging wine, can readily age for a decade or two! Flavours of pepper, black fruits, with overtones of chocolate, aromas of dried figs, chocolate and plum. Inky black in colour. DNA analysis suggest that Aglianico and Shiraz are related. Pair well with lamb, rich meats, prime rib, venison, rabbit and smokey BBQ is a match made in heaven! Yummo!
