An extraordinary award-winning Riserva Red Wine formed within the strict DOC guidelines.

Its aroma is complex with pleasant hints of ripe red fruit and jam with a hint of spice. The taste is elegant, complex with the good aftertaste and pleasantly tannic. This wine goes excellent with red meat and game. Ideally served at a temperature range of 16-18°C.

Description

Carrese Aglianico Sannio Riserva 2016 DOC 13.5% (Red)

Farming of the grapes: This wine is obtained from Aglianico grape, grown in limestone-clay soils at an altitude of 200-350 m.a.s.l. Located on the slopes of the Regional Park of Taburno-Camposauro. An espalier farming system is employed giving a yield of 80 hectares from wines with the average age between 10 and 25 years. The harvest takes place during the month of October.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and conferred to the winery. There follows the de-stemming and soft pressing. The vinification is carried out by maceration with the skins, which are continuously re-submerged into the must. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. After a short time in large Slavonian oak barrels, the wine is aged in barriques for a period ranging from 18 to 24 months. It is then bottled to continue ageing.
