Salvatore Molettieri Aglianico Irpinia 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

'Molettieri is one of my favorite producers in Campania.' -- Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate'Molettieri owns some of the best-located vineyards in Taurasi and his wines are textbook, uncompromising examples of what Aglianico can do here.' -- Stephen Tanzer, IWCMolettieri's vineyards are located in the finest sub-zone for Aglianico production. Production is entirely biodynamic at this tiny family-run estate (the family even mills flour from their own wheat fields to produce bread!) At these high-altitude vineyards, harvest often does not take place until mid-November, and sometimes under snow. For delicious early, the Irpinia Aglianico is an intense mouthful at a fantastic price. 100% Aglianico, femented in stainless and aged part in large oak casks and part in French oak barriques for 16 months, this dark, intense wine displays spicy notes of nutmeg and elegant balsamic nuances that mingle with ripe marasca cherry, cloves and cocoa notes.
