Why I suggest Aglianico riserva Cappellaccio Castel del Monte DOC
As we consider it a ready and very good wine, the Riserve de Aglianico Cappellaccio are to be reserved for important occasions and respects tradition and is very long-lived. We think it will reach excellence in a few years, around ten years after the harvest. Puglia maintains a high reputation for the quality / price ratio.
The Sommelier: Intense amaranth red wine and purple reflections, with a substantial consistency. The fruity of undergrowth accompanied by the pleasant spiciness of licorice and bitter note of rhubarb is impactful and varied.
Dry, fairly fresh taste, a slight astringency of the tannin is felt when the wine has yet to reach full maturity, but the time to come, a velvety and well-balanced tannin will delight us. On the palate great body and a very persistent finish, pleasant fine wine, tending to excellence.
Suggested pairings: Well-seasoned and spiced dishes, stewed and braised beef, vegetables in pinzimonio; grilled goat meat, Florentine steak; Baked pasta timbale, mint snails, Baccala with baked potatoes; cheeses and salami.
Uncork ½ h before serving at a temperature between 16 - 18 ° C, in a large Ballon glass.
Wine cellar: Rivera .... centuries have passed and selection lists of varietal clones have led to the affirmation of the great Apulian black berry wine potential: Nero di Troia ... go to the file.
