Have you ever heard of the Aglianico grape? Due to its ancient origins, it’s believed to be one of the varietals that have been most consumed throughout human history. Here's an opportunity to taste a perfect Aglianico at a ridiculous price!An extraordinary, structured, and beautiful wine from the classic region of Campania!
The surname Mastroberardino is synonymous with wine in Italy. This family is largely responsible for the resurgence of wine culture in the Campania after World War II.
The winemaking history of this family dates back to more than 10 generations, from the 18th century. A story of passion and strength, a story about rebuilding all the damage that war can cause. Antonio Mastroberardino, who was the 9th generation, fought in World War II. He returned to his home in Atripalda to find what would be a nightmare, his family's wine estate destroyed due to the war and all the negative consequences that follow a war. Antonio, devastated by the war and the conditions in which he found the family’s patrimony, decided to give everything, start from scratch and rebuild his legacy. Thanks to his love, passion, and hard work, he managed to restore both the vineyard and the cellar.
Like the resurgence of his family estate, Antonio achieved the resurgence of some indigenous grapes from this region: Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico. And it managed to position them again as the flagship grapes of Campania.
The large vineyard of Mastroberardino is composed of more than 785 acres. Located in the areas of Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, and Taurasi (all in the province of Irpinia). Irpinia is a paradise, with the Alps mountains in the foreground, the Mediterranean sea as its neighbor, and a continental climate that allows for a wonderful development of the varieties that are planted.
Piero, Antonio's son, is a passionate winegrower and is the current director of the winery. Piero has brought great knowledge to the winery thanks to his research and plantation projects and his passion for continuing to rebuild the family legacy.
2016 Mastroberardino Redimore Aglianico is a delightful wine. Redimore means "King of the Blackberries" and refers to jovial wines. This wine is made with grapes from their vineyard in Taurasi DOCG. And, if there is a place where Aglianico is the queen, it’s here. Thanks to their soils containing a greater presence of organic and volcanic matter, the Aglianico develops wonderfully!
Aging: 12 months in French Oak Barrels.
Tasting Notes: 100% Aglianico. Deep ruby red. A complex and enveloping bouquet offers aromas of red fruits, particularly strawberry and raspberry, and spices such as vanilla, tobacco, cocoa, and coffee. This is a warm, enveloping wine with great structure and notable softness. This wine pairs lovely with meat, game, and truffle dishes.
Aromas of pressed violet, red berry, and underbrush lead the nose. The savory polished palate delivers raspberry, red cherry, and cinnamon alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity ~90 Points, Wine Enthusiast.
