Aglianico Beneventano, Bellamico, 2014

Campania, Italy

Notes:

From vineyards in the Benevento region of Campania, Aglianico is one of the higher-quality red-wine grapes found in southern Italy. Greek in origin it has been grown in Italy since the time of the ancient Romans. It is thought to have been planted in this region as early as the seventh century BC. It flourishes in volcanic soil of which there is no shortage around Naples. It is a late ripening grape usually harvested in October or early November.


If you're a fan of rustic, earth-driven wines you'll love this. Quite full bodied, it has a great balance with subtle fruit flavours and earthy, tarry and chocolate characteristics.

Regional Info

Campania

The ancient heritage of its vineyards and a great respect for tradition hold the key to Campania’s success in the world of wine. Instead of seeking out international markets by planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, Campania’s winemakers have stayed true to their proud heritage of indigenous grapes that best reflect Campania’s terroir.


Campania’s wines were first enjoyed by the Romans whose proud tradition of producing Falernian from Aglianico grapes around Naples was reflected in other parts of the region. They also produced a white wine that is thought to be related to the modern Falanghina. Wines made around Vesuvius and Avellino were similarly revered. Even today, as improvements in both the vineyard and the winery have influenced the style of wine produced here, there is still a great respect for tradition reflected in the use of native grapes that are largely unknown in other parts of the world.

A lovely full bodied wine that is largely overlooked as it is not very well known here. I found this in Naples and if you like fuller bodied wines that don't break the bank then look no further. (Posted on 16/01/2017)
