Jacuzzi Family Vineyard Aglianico Paso Robles 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This is our first year of production of Aglianico; an ancient variety that was thought to have been planted in Southern Italy in Campagnia and Basilicata in the seventh century B.C. The name is derived from “Hellenic” which means “Greek” - thus providing a clue to it’s origins. It is known for dense flavors and big age-worthy tannins. There are very few acres of Aglianico planted in California and even fewer Aglianico wines produced.
