Aglianico wines


Aglianico is a black grape grown in the Basilicata and Campania regions of Italy. The vine originated in Greece and was brought to the south of Italy by Greek settlers.


The name may be a corruption of vitis hellenica, Latin for 'Greek vine' and the principal grape of the famous Falernian wine, the Roman equivalent of a first-growth wine today.


When young, Aglianico is very tannic and concentrated, requiring a few years of ageing before it can be approachable. As it ages, the fruit becomes more pronounced and the tannins more balanced with the rest of the wine.


The trademark coloring of the wine is a deep garnet and in well made examples of the wine, it can have chocolate and plum aromas.
