Somos Biodynamic Aglianico 2021
Aglianico is a high octane variety, producers in Campania tend to treat it similarly to Nebbiolo and give it long macerations and consequently long maturation times in oak. We try and treat it more like Pinot Noir. Cold soaking and gentle treatment with whole-bunch ferment, which results in a lighter yet structured Aglianico; tons of spice and flowers, svelte texture, pepper-dashed red and black sour-sweet fruit character.
