Montevina Aglianico

Montevina Aglianico Wine Details
Price: $12.00 per bottle

Description: Montevina's 2000 Aglianico boasts a brooding, dark garnet/purple color, a come-hither aroma of wild mint, blackberry and herbs, with a touch of sweet oak vanillin, and rich, grapey, blackberry flavors supported by supple tannins and excellent acidity. Delightful now with food - grilled chicken, red sauce pastas, beef, and lamb - it will profit from several years' additional bottle age.

Varietal Definition
Minor grape responsible for some of the better sturdy red wines of southern Italy. Descendant of the ancient Falernum grape. Also makes good bronze-colored rose' wine.
