 Pietracupa Campania Aglianico Quirico IGT 2018

Pietracupa Campania Aglianico Quirico opens with a fragrant nose of plums, black pepper and leather. The palate is structured with a dynamic mouthfeel, great flavour and a pleasantly tannic finish.

100% Aglianico. The fruit comes from Pietracupa's vineyards, which reach heights of up to 800 metres and has a south-eastern exposure. The soils are loamy and calcareous. The vines benefit from a microclimate with sufficiently high temperature fluctuations, which allows the grapes to ripen beautifully.

 Ageing potential: long ageing potential.
