Aglianico

Aglianico is a black grape grown in the Basilicata and Campania regions of Italy. The grape has also recently been planted in Australia, Texas and California, as it thrives in predominantly sunny climates. Wines produced from Aglianico tend to be full-bodied with firm tannins and high acidity, endowing them with good aging potential. The rich flavors of the wine make it appropriate for pairing with rich meats such as lamb.
