Aglianico del Volture: a full-bodied red from Lucania

Lucania is a mainly agricultural region in the south; dispite this attitude, it produces only one DOC wine: Aglianico, a full-bodied red with firm tannins and high acidity. Its name come from a corruption of the word "Hellenic" or Greek, because the grape variety was imported by Greeks in pre-roman times and planted in the areas around the Mount Volture, an extinct volcano with a peculiar soil composition.

Aglianico del Volture is gaining every day more recognition as a typical southern Italy wine taste. Try one bottle: you'll be amazed.
