Aglianico is a black-skinned grape variety native to southern Italy. It is known to produce full-bodied red wines that show musky berry flavors with firm tannins and good aging potential. Even when grown in hot climates, Aglianico is capable of reaching high levels of acidity, which makes it a particularly useful vine in the Mediterranean.
Aglianico del Vulture is a tannic, full-bodied red wine from the Basilicata region of southern Italy. As implied by the name, it is made from Aglianico grapes grown around Monte Vulture, an extinct volcano which dominates the skyline and landscape of northern Basilicata. It is one of southern Italy's greatest wines and has been dubbed the ‘Barolo of the South’, a nickname it shares with its Campanian counterpart, Taurasi.
