Why we love it
This is a fruit driven, unaged Aglianico, with a very intense, persistent nose with notes of black fruit, in the palate the wine is medium bodied, lively, crunchy, balanced and with a long aftertaste.
The aglianico grape despite being widely grown in the south of Italy, from Abruzzo to Calabria, produces the best examples in Campania and Basilicata, where it is known as Aglianico del Vulture. This is a very versatile aglianico capable of pairing many dishes of the Campania tradition, from pizza margherita to tomato based pasta, even though it pairs beautifully meats and roasts.
The artisan who made it
The story of Tralci Hirpini is a story of friendship, a story that is intertwined with that of a fertile and difficult territory, Irpinia, aka land of the wolf, with rolling hills and immense green spaces. Tralci Hirpini are three friends that believe in respecting nature and in the pursuit of excellence, attention to detail and in continuous experimentation.
Today, among the vineyards of these fertile land with a strong wine-growing vocation, where the Aglianico vine has found its natural habitat and gives its best expressions, Tralci Hirpini is tradition and modernity. Tralci Hirpini is Fiano and their Fiano di Avellino, Greco and their Greco di Tufo and Falanghina, Tralci Hirpici is much more than Aglianico in the most vocated area.
