La Fortezza, Aglianico, Taburno, DOCG, 2018

The vineyards from which the grapes used to make this interesting red wine originate are located in Torrecuso, in the province of Benevento. This is an area of the choice for many great warm-hearted wines. Wines produced with grapes ripened under the Campania sun, with a climate more than mild and many hours of sunshine every day, for several months a year. In the country, the techniques are strict. Harvest by hand, selection of the best bunches. Then the grapes are delivered to the winery to be processed as soon as possible. Pressing and destemming, then prolonged maceration to extract the best color and tannins. After vinification, a slow aging process allows the wine to reach the right level of pleasantness. The result is an intense and concentrated red. In the glass it has a beautiful ruby color, with aromas reminiscent of wild berries. A nice wine that on the palate is soft and pleasant, warm and with clear hints of black cherry jam.
