Aglianico del Vulture D.O.C. Alba Collection Masserie X MENNITI
From two thoughts of contemporary ancestrality, Alba collection is born: the result of the union of our most representative wine and the re-imagination of the art and symbols that have characterized southern Italy, graphically represented on the label in a modern key in an international context .
Aglianico del Vulture in purity, obtained from our vineyards with an average age between 27 and 30 years.
From it we select the best grapes, harvested by hand in the third decade of October. The grapes are immediately taken to the cellar, in steel barrels where the vinification takes place, with long maceration on the skins and repeated pumping over.
Refine for 12 months in stainless steel barrels at a controlled temperature, for another 6 months in terracotta amphorae and finally for at least 6 months in the bottle.
Intense ruby red color.
The nose shows notes of black cherry, wild berries, black pepper and vanilla, complex, of good intensity, fruity and spicy. On the palate it is warm, balanced and persistent, with spicy flavors and with a strong and marked tannin with a dense texture, the structure is full-bodied, fine, elegant and pleasant.
To be served with local cured meats such as Lucana sausage, risotto and meat sauce and with second courses of grilled or roasted meat and medium-aged cheeses.
