Aglianico Riserva Molise DOC 2011

The Phoenicians brought Aglianico to Italy from Greece and mainly from Eubea, many centuries before Christ was born. This Ancient Vine produced Pope Paul III’s favourite wine.

The wine has a ruby red colour with a slight hint of orange, a winy bouquet, ample and intense with hints of ripe fruit. Mellow and velvety, it is very harmonic, full-bodied and with just the right tannic content and hints of almonds.

Ideal with savoury foods, starters, game and cheese. Serving temperature: 16°-18°C
