About the Wine
From the birthplace of pizza, San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, and so many more gastronomic treasures comes this regional red wine in Campania.
This wine is 100% Aglianico, produced by La Bollina. Andrea Bernardini is the passionate consultant winemaker who has hit numerous home runs. He graduated from Pisa, one of the best schools of oenology in Italy, in 2007. He earned his chops at Poggio Bonelli and Ruffino in Tuscany and trained in South Africa, Romania and Greece. After several years of experiences he is now a flying winemaker blending tradition and modern techniques to obtain high-quality wines with respect to the expression of the different grapes and terroir in which he works.
Tasting Notes: Berries, cherries, and black cherries are perfectly blended with the soft notes of wood that give this wine the pleasantness typical of the area from which the grapes come. Fruity notes are mixed with the vanilla and mocha sensations coming from aging, good palate, full body and roundness gives this wine an excellent drinkability.
If you're looking for an anytime wine, rich with blueberry fruit, a touch of herbs, and mocha, this is the wine for you. Very little oak on this wine makes it a perfect match for a variety of foods or on its own.
