The Aglianico red wines from Beneventano (Campania), at the foot of the Vesuvius volcano, enjoy a very good reputation as particularly tasty representatives of their grape variety. Of course, this applies in particular to this example from the Fantini / Farnese house, the multiple winery of the year in Italy according to Luca Maroni, a wine journalist with a penchant for particularly fruit-intensive southern wines.
The Vesevo Aglianico has a deep red color with a violet edge. The scent is playful and intense, berries, spices and vanilla can be found. On the palate it is grippy, the tannins are noticeable, but ripe and mild. In the long lasting finale it has a nice clarity. Tastes like a lot, costs little! The 2011 vintage received the gold medal in the Berlin Wine Trophy!
By the way, the 2019 vintage is available with two different labels, the first series came with the old white label, the second with the new black label.
