Intense ruby red in color with garnet reflections, Vignali is aromatic with delicate scents of currants, cherry and spice. Dry and persistent on the palate, Vignali is an ideal choice for pasta, roasted meats, ribs, game, and aged cheeses.
Vignali is made from 100% old-vine Aglianico harvested in mid to late October from vineyards that were planted in 1975 in the Vúlture area of Basilicata. Aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 10 months to provide roundness and softness. An additional six months in bottle allow for extra finesse.
"This aglianico grows between 1,300 and 1,800 feet on the volcanic slopes of Monte Vulture, at the far end of the Italian peninsula. Full and ripe, with flavors of dried red and black berries held firm by leathery tannins, it's a classic style ready for lamb that's braised until falling from the bone."
