Italian wine and grape guide : Aglianico


The Aglianico grape has probably Greek origin and in Italy is found mainly in the provinces of Avellino and Benevento in Campania and prefers volcanic soils, where it gives the best results. The Aglianico grape is a very good grape and it produces great wines, including the Taurasi DOCG. The wines made with Aglianico are suitable for aging and the aging in wood tend to smooth the tannins of young wines and sweeten the product, making it elegant and harmonious. The spread of the grape which has created differences has created two varietals, the Aglianico - grown primarily in Campania and Taurasi for the Taurasi wine - and l 'Aglianico del Vulture - grown in Basilicata.
