Aglianico

Aglianico is a real find...if you can find it! Rare imports aren’t increasing fast enough for an Italian red some regard as the much cheaper equal of Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. Another stunner from Campania - and originally Greece - Aglianico probably put the legend into the “Falernian” wine of Roman history. Deep, dark-fruited and layered with graphite/volcanic soil influences from Apennine elevations in Italy’s south, Aglianicos like Taurasi and Aglianico del Vulture can exhibit complexity, body and tannins as ‘serious’ as top Nebbiolo (even turning a similar brick colour with age). Like Sangiovese too it has high-acid when ripe, leading smart producers in hot climates Australia and California to experiment with this possible future legend.
