This 2014 Aglianico (pronounced ah-YAH-nee-koh) was our first vintage to spend time aging in our terracotta amphorae, and the influence of the clay lends an old-world profile to this wine: it is tightly-wound, with dark color, grippy tannins, and a clean minerality. This is a wine to linger over (with a thoughtfully prepared meal), and consider, as it develops with time in the glass. It’s utterly dry mouthfeel plays well with food, and just a little time and air will bring out the appetizing red fruit and spice notes inherent to this southern Italian varietal. This one will age elegantly for years, and if you plan to enjoy it in the short-term be sure to decant it. Delightful pairings include cacio e pepe, and grill roasted lamb with rosemary and garlic.
