Aglianico del Vulture Terre di Orazio wine is a really classic, mature, southern Italian red which is remarkably accessible for the notoriously tannic Aglianico grape. Terre di Orazio means ‘Land of Horace’ - the famous Latin poet was born here in Venosa. A warm and richly-flavoured oak-aged Aglianico. The Aglianico grape is believed to have been introduced to the region by the Greeks in the 6th or 7th century BC!
With striking aromas of violet, bramble, and cassis, the generous palate is packed full of red and black berry fruits, with spice and well-integrated oak giving structure and length. At its best with pasta dishes, red meats and mature cheeses. A bold yet welcome friend through the winter months.
