Joaquin 2017 'I Viaggiatori' Aglianico, Campania, Italy

Winemaker: Raffaele Pagano

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: Aglianico 

Terroir: A 1.2 hectare, single parcel of ungrafted Aglianico vines between 150 and 200 years old in the commune of Paternopoli, Taurasi’s southernmost subzone. 

Vinification: Raffaele dislikes technological interference in the cellar, and he produces his wines in an exceptionally straightforward manner: no outside yeasts, no temperature control, minimal sulfur additions (25 to 30 milligrams per liter on average), no new oak, and no fining or filtration. He ferments his Aglianico in old open-top Slavonian oak barrels over 15 days. "I Viaggiatori" is produced only in vintages when Raffaele does not bottle a Taurasi Rivserva wine. 

Tasting Notes: A full bodied, powerful red wine, this very special Aglianico has aromas of violets, black pepper, sugar-glazed blueberries, and fresh sandalwood. It is intense on the palate, with pressing tannin and unending intensity of flavors that echo the nose. Age up to 15 years.
