Description

Terredora Aglianico "Il Principio" DOC


Aglianico is one of the the 3 greats of Italian grapes other than Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. Terredora's Aglianico "Il Principio"  is made of 100% Aglianico grapes. Aglianico is a full bodied black grape varietal grown in the southern regions of Italy. Mostly Campania and Basilica



​Terredora's Aglianicoil Principio is a ruby red to garnet red with notes of black cherry, wild blackberry. An ever so slight plum fruit flavours with a spicy, toasted overtone. It is like a smoky minerality, liquorice, toast and vanilla wrapped around a core of well-defined red fruit and flowers. Elegant and peppery with a solid structure provided by ripe firm/fine grained tannins and refreshing acidity.


Grapes are carefully chosen and vinified with an average maceration on the skins of 8-10 days. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in small oak barrels. This process last for 12-18 months, and then for at least 24-30 months in the bottle.
