Aglianico Sannio DOP
Farming of the Grapes
This wine is obtained from Aglianico grapes grown in limestone-clay soils at an altitude of 150 - 350 m.a.s.l. in the area of Solopaca located on the slopes of the Regional Park Taburno-Camposauro. An espalier farming system is employed giving a yield of 80 qq/ha from vines with an average age of between 10 and 25 years. The harvest takes place during the month of October.
The grapes are harvested by hand and conferred to the winery; there follows the de-stemming and soft pressing of the grapes. The vinification is carried out by maceration with the skins which are continuously re-submerged into the must; fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The product is then aged in large oak casks for at least 18 months. The aging process then continues in the bottle.
