Aglianico is a black grape traditionally grown in the southern regions of Italy. Along with Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, it is considered one of the three greatest Italian varietals.
Wines produced from Aglianico tend to be full-bodied with firm tannins and high acidity. The rich, rustic flavours of the wine make it appropriate for pairing with rich meats such as lamb.
This Barossa Aglianico has vibrant colour, complex aromas of rose, red jubes, liquorice, citrus peel and sage. A textural wine displaying what this variety is all about, super fine long tannin and natural acidity that drags fruit to the very back of the palate, a very slight bitter note (think Aperol) just adds to this quite wonderful varietal.
