Re Manfredi Aglianico Aglianico del Vulture 2009

External Review:

Basilicata is a region where there is relatively little wine, but where the right climate manages to combine with the perfect soil, the wine it produces is of a truly outstanding quality. This magical and rare union occurs on the Re Manfredi / Terre degli Svevi estate, which surrounds an avant-garde cellar on the slopes of Monte Vulture, the ancient extinct volcano which rises in the Lucanian Apennines. In a very beautiful, wild and rugged region, the vineyards spread over the lowest parts of the volcano. It is here that the Aglianico vine is cultivated; the name is a corruption of "Ellenico", a vine imported during the Greek domination. The Aglianico del Vulture is a dark, very well-structured red wine with good ageing potential. This wine pairs well with venison, roasts, red meat, lamb, grilled meats, game, beef.
