Aglianico | Grape variety

Aglianico is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is known for producing full-bodied red wines with musky berry flavors, firm tannins and good aging potential. Even in hot climates, Aglianico can maintain high acidity, making it a particularly useful grape variety in the Mediterranean. Despite its comparatively high acidity, the variety is late ripening and vigorous, and tends to produce large quantities of fruit when not restricted by viticultural measures.

In their youth, Aglianico wines tend to be very tannic and concentrated, especially when unfavorable weather conditions force growers to harvest their crop before it is fully ripe. Aging for several years has a positive effect on the wine, helping to soften the tannins and improve the fruit profile. Aglianico wines are typically garnet red in color, fading to terra cotta tones after sufficient bottle aging.

For some time, the Aglianico grape was believed to be of Greek origin - its name is a derivative of the word 'Hellenic" - but recent DNA studies, as well as etymological and historical research, indicate that this is not the case and that the grape is actually native to southern Italy. It should not be confused with the similar-sounding Aleatico, which is usually grown east of there, in Puglia. - Gerardo

Cappellaccio Aglianico Riserva DOC 2014, Rivera, Apulien

Cappellaccio Aglianico Riserva DOC 2014


Rivera, Puglia

Pure varietal Aglianico of strong ruby color and garnet reflections. Intense aroma, with typical Aglianico spice and impressions of prunes, black pepper, wood spice and some leather. On the palate of good density and structure and integrated tannins, persistent. - Gerardo

"The delightful Castel del Monte Aglianico Riserva Cappellaccio is one of the best expressions of this noble Italian grape made in Puglia. Aglianico is associated with the regions of Campania and Basilicata, but has been making its way into Puglian winemaking in recent years. This balanced vintage opens to dark fruit aromas with background notes of cola, licorice and blue flower. Aglianico normally shows strong mineral characteristics and you get some of those dusty tones of granite and slate here. They remain very much in the background." - Robert Parker

"A firm and focused red in an old-school style, layering taut tannins with flavors of dried cherry and currant, underbrush, black olive tapenade and a sweet hint of fig bread. Fresh, balanced finish." - Wine Spectator
