Every year Montesole Aglianico tells the story of millenniums-old Vitis Hellenica, autochtonous grape variety cultivated in unique, experienced Irpinia terroir, the ancient Romans’ land of wolves. A quaffable yet naturally intense red with plum, red fruits and hints of vanilla, mid-bodied structure with brilliantly balanced taste as well as smooth tannins. A perfect match for spiced meats, Italian ragù sauce pasta, hard cheese, salami, vegetable consommés.
