Carmelitano Pian del Moro
About the Winemaking: The family cares for three separate Aglianico vineyards, all located on the southern slopes of Monte Vulture at 2,000 feet above sea level. Soils are a mix of clay, volcanic lava and chalk. The estate has been certified as organic since the 2010 vintage. The wine is made with 100% Aglianico. The grapes of this wine come from the oldest vineyard. The resulting wine is aged in steel tanks for 12 months and then raised in 500-liter French oak barrels for about 12 months. It is marketed after a long refinement in the bottle.
Tasting Notes: It pours with a deep red, garnet color. Rich nose of red ripe fruit, chocolate covered strawberry, marron glacé, and black licorice. Medium to full body with a spicy roundness. To drink with rich dishes and enjoy for the next 10-15 years if cellared.
