Food Pairings for Monte Faliesi Aglianico
Harvested by hand in late October, maceration immediately followed for 48 hours in stainless steel tanks. The juice then underwent alcoholic fermentation for 15 days in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 20-22°C, as well as complete malolactic fermentation. It is aged in 2nd-use French oak barriques for 6 months, plus an additional 2 months in bottle after the wine was micro-filtered and fined.
This Aglianico is full-bodied with firm tannins and high acidity, rendering it a wine with excellent aging potential. As it ages, the fruit becomes more pronounced and the tannins more balanced with the rest of the wine. On the nose, it expresses aromas of chocolate and plum.
