Winemaker's Notes:

Gudarrà is deep ruby-red in color with enticing notes of red cherries, cassis, blackberries, sweet spice and a hint of licorice. This is an accessible, versatile red that pairs beautifully with southern Italian Pasta dishes, lamb, grilled or roasted game and ripe, flavorful cheeses.

About Azienda Bisceglia:

The Bisceglia Estate is situated on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano, Mount Vulture, in the splendid district of Lavello. This old farming community is officially recognized as "Wine Town" in the Basilicata Region of Southern Italy. The winery itself was designed by internationally-acclaimed architects Hikaru Mori and Domenico Santomauro and has state of the art winemaking facilities as well as aging cellars.

The Estate extends over uncontaminated hillside rich in flora and fauna, characterized by a Mediterranean microclimate. A natural balance of temperature changes characterizes this terroir, conferring remarkable fertility to calcareous and clay loam soils. The Bisceglia is comprised of forty hectares of vines in the heart of the Aglianico DOC appellation, which include the local varieties Aglianico, Moscato and Fiano as well as a selection of international vine varieties.
