Sannio Aglianico DOC, made from 100% Aglianico, an indigenous grape of Campania, is the jewel of southern Italy that easily stands shoulder to shoulder with Chianti and Barolo. Ruby red with violet reflections, this wonderful expression of Sannio Aglianico DOC from Cantina Rossovermiglio has an intense and complex bouquet of cherry, plum, and strawberry with delicate secondary notes of pepper, cinnamon, clove, tobacco, and rosemary. Full-bodied, well structured with velvety tannins and a long finish, Sannio Aglianico DOC can be drunk now or laid down for further bottle ageing. Drink now to 2035.
Cantina Rossovermiglio harvests their grapes by hand. Fermentation begins in steel tanks before ageing in French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine is then refined in bottles for six months. Only 12,000 bottles of this wine are produced each year.

Ancient traditions and modern production methods are at the heart of Cantina Rossovermiglio's core values.
Aglianico is a native Italian grape and is mainly grown in southern Italy. Aglianico wines are generally full-bodied with good tannins and high acidity, making these wines ideal for ageing. Thanks to its versatility, Aglianico can be used as a single varietal or in a blend and typically boasts flavours of ripe berries and plums with notes of spices and herbs.
