    Winemaker Notes

    Made from 100% Aglianico harvested from the Montemarano vineyard in November. The vineyard is located 1,980 feet above sea level and consists of chalk and clay soils. The grapes were crushed and macerated for 16-18 days. After fermentation the wine was aged in Slovenian barrels for 12 months. The Aglianico Monsignore is a robust wine well-balanced in its tannins and generous fruit.

    Aminea, Italy
    Aminea was founded in 1997 and produced their first vintage in 1999. The winery is located in the town of Montemarano in the heart of the Taurasi appellation. Besides being known as the largest and best producer of Aglianico for Taurasi, the area is famous for chestnuts. Montemarano is a tiny village located in highest part of the mountain chain which encompasses the region of Irpinia. This hilly area runs along and overlooks the Calore river. Over 2,000 years ago, the area was settled by the Aminei. Even at that time, they were producing a wine call Aminea which is known today as Fiano. The area used to be covered by one of the largest forests in southern Italy. This part of Italy has always had lush and fertile soils that produced abundant fruits and vegetables. Because the soils are so rich in minerals, the Aglianico grown here tends to be more structured with greater longevity.

    Today, the Aminea company is owned and managed by 3 partners, Michele Fede, Michele Morsa and Domenico Morgillo. Each have individual professions but they are united by a common passion for wine. The 3 families own 45 acres of land but purchase wine from growers to reach approximately twice as much as they are able to produce for themselves. Aminea is a dynamic, young operation with plans to build new winery within 3 years.

    Italian Red Wine

    While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

    The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

    For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
