hills of Murgia area in Apulia, one of south Italy's warmest
regions, where perfect growing conditions allow this wine to be
a success in every occasion.
Hints of the Vineyard: Aglianico grapes are harvested in early
October, which means that they need a very favorable climate,
in order to obtain the perfect ripeness.
This wine is called "Rinforzato" (literally reinforced) because
the grapes are left on the vine a little longer than usual, so that
they bring power and structure to the wine.

techniques to enhance the natural texture and body of
Aglianico Rinforzato, before being aged in barriques.
Ageing: Aged in 225Lt french oak barrels for 12 to 15 months,
according to the vintage peculiarities.
