Rotondo Aglianico del Vulture DOC
Contrada Rotondo, in the countryside of Barile, is historically one of the most evocative and coveted places for Aglianico cultivation. In this area there is Villa Rotondo, owned by Paternoster family. It is the estate from which this marvelous Aglianico is born. Classic vinification in red of destemmed Aglianico grapes, macerated on the skins in steel for 10 days at 25-28 °C, with periodic repassing and punching down. The wine ages in barriques for 14 months and refines in the bottle for the next 12 months.
Rotondo has an intense and brilliant ruby red colour. The nose offers aromas of spices and licorice. In the mouth it is juicy, fruity taste of raspberry and jam. A new style Aglianico! We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C in a large glass.

Chosen for you
Enchanting Vulture is considered the natural parent of a symbol wine which is the holy fruit of a blessed, eternal and generously lush nature. Aglianico del Vulture is our country mirror, fully resembling its land of origin. It bounds a generous and hidden region resting, just like a precious stone, between Tirrenian and Ionian seas, crossed by five rivers and deeply marked by green borderies recalling painful memories.
