Vigneti del Vulture, 'Pipoli', Aglianico del Vulture DOCG, Puglia, Italy

£11.49

A great example of south Italian Aglianico. A ruby and violet coloured wine, intense aromas and full bodied power. There's hints of cherry, cocoa, toasty oak, and spice. Very robust, rich, and deeply satisfying. Warming and sumptuous, this wine is for those who like their reds with flavoursome muscle.

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 works with Manuel Barbone, and together they manage to capture the character of the grapes and the zone superbly in the bottle.
