VARIETAL

Aglianico, Rosso Puglia IGP

10,00
The Aglianico Red Puglia IGP from Villa Schinosa is a tribute to the historical richness of the grape variety, considered among the oldest and most noble in Italy. Originating from Greece and introduced to Italy in ancient times, Aglianico finds in Puglia an ideal terroir that enhances its unique characteristics. This wine presents itself with an intense garnet red color and a complex bouquet of ripe red fruit, where the wood aging rounds off the tannins and gives the product a surprising finesse and harmony. On the palate, it reveals a solid structure, balanced by just the right amount of tannin and freshness that invites the next sip, with a long and dry finish. Perfectly paired with rich dishes such as robust pasta, roasted meats, and aged cheeses, Villa Schinosa’s Aglianico is an excellent choice for those wishing to explore the depth and complexity of Southern Italy’s red wines. Serve at a temperature of 18°C after letting it breathe for at least an hour, to fully appreciate the explosion of aromas and flavors.
