Aleatico

Limited plantings of this minor red wine variety are found in warmer areas of California and Australia. Aleatico is more commonly grown in the Apulia and Abruzzo regions of southern and central Italy, on the islands of Elba and Corsica and occasionally further north in the central regions of Umbria and Tuscany. Aleatico has a strong Muscat, grape-like aroma, and is typically used to produce sweet red wines. Some believe that it is somehow related to Muscat of Alexandria, while others consider Sangiovese to be the more logical ancestor. However, DNA evaluation has not conclusively proven its lineage. There a scattering of acres of Aleatico in California. Given many red wine drinkers aversion to sweet wines, Aleatico is likely to live in relative obscurity in North America.

    Snoothrank:

    I bought a case of the 2006 Pacomio through Viansa as I had enjoyed it in the past and the price was right. Served it to friends and we all agreed it was a little rough (to be kind). I don't know if aging will help or if this wine will go into the cooking category. Read More
