Wine Club Aglianico Riserva


Aglianico (alli-yawn-oco), known in Italy as the “grape of the plain”, is a late ripening, full-bodied red wine which is found almost exclusively in the Southern Italian regions of Campania and Basilicata.  A mere hundreds of acres are grown in the United States with the Texas High Plains AVA being planted to around 100.  Our traditional winemaking methods were applied to create a dark, black fruit scented, smokey, chocolatey wine with grippy tannins and a refreshing lower alcohol (only 13%) content. This style of Aglianico needs sufficient oxygen to reveal its true potential, so we suggest decanting for 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving it in large tulip wine glasses. The ideal pairing for this wine is bbq brisket, smoked pork, carne asada, chili, and strong cheese
