Cantina Madonna delle Grazie 'Messer Otto' 2016 Aglianico del Vulture, Basilicata, Italy

Winemaker: Giuseppe Latorraca

Farming: Certified Organic

Varieties: Aglianico 

Terroir: Black volcanic soil with clay

Vinification: Fully destemmed and crushed before fermenting in stainless steel vats. Gentle pump-overs (more early on and less toward the end) are made each day during its 10-14 day fermentation.

Aging: The wine is left on its lees in stainless steel tanks for two to three years, depending on the vintage. Sulfites may be added before fermentation but its more common after the malolactic fermentation—this depends on how healthy the grapes are. It is lightly filtered but not fined.

Tasting Notes: Rustic but elegant, this is an approachable Aglianico, with aromas of dried strawberry, fresh thyme, graphite and bergamot.
