Winemaker Notes

Full-bodied and exuberant with notes of plum and sweet spices. Accompanies all dishes with strong flavors, especially medium and aged cheeses, and roasted and grilled meat.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 91
Vinous

The 2019 Aglianico Ceraso takes some time to open in the glass, as it slowly blows off its youthfully reductive state. Beneath, a pretty display of wet stone, violets and crushed blackberries can be found. This is elegant and soothing on the palate, contrasting ripe black fruits and sweet spices with salty minerals and vibrant acidity. It finishes remarkably long, staining and with grippy tension, as fine tannins frame the experience and leave floral nuances over a reverberating core of licorice. There’s a lot going on under the surface here, which only time will reveal. If enjoying the 2019 today, make sure to decant for at least an hour. Best after 2023.

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Making its home in the mountainous southern Italy, Aglianico is a bold red variety that is late to ripen and often spends until November on the vine. It thrives in Campania as the exclusive variety in the age-worthy red wine called Taurasi. Aglianico also has great success in the volcanic soils of Basilicata where it makes the robust, Aglianico del Vulture. Somm Secret—The name “Aglianico” bears striking resemblance to Ellenico, the Italian word for "Greek," but no evidence shows it has Greek ancestry. However, it first appeared in Italy around an ancient Greek colony located in present-day Avellino, Campania.
