Aglianico is a grape variety known for producing full-bodied, robust wines with a high tannin content and notable acidity, making them highly age-worthy. Originating from the southern regions of Italy, particularly Basilicata and Campania, Aglianico is often compared to Nebbiolo for its potential to evolve complexity and nuance over time. The wines typically exhibit deep, rich flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, and spices, with an underlying minerality that reflects the volcanic soils of its growing regions.
