Aglianico! The Best Aglianico Wines
Aglianico! One of the more overlooked varieties in southern Italy, this noble grape produces big, brooding wines with lots of potential to age.
While it may be hard to find, wines made from Aglianico don't tend to command as big of a premium as their counterparts from Piedmont so there is definitely value to be found here.
Taurasi, Taburno and Basilicata are a few of the areas that specialize in this variety and region names you should look for on the label for some of the best examples. But of course, don't stop there, this is definitely a variety we encourage you to explore.
