The Chronicle Wine Selections: Aglianico - The Molise region is located along the Adriatic Sea between Puglia and Abruzzo. Consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella helped the Di Majo Norante family - grapegrowers since the 1800s - produce this value-priced wine. Aromas of cherry cola, ripe plum, clove spice, sage and marjoram. Intense and well tailored, with ripe, sweet berry flavors and a firm structure.
Mastroberardino - San Francisco Chronicle
Aglianico Campania IGT
Winemaker Piero Mastroberardino uses grapes from a 10-year-old, 25-acre vineyard that is 1,375 feet above sea level, with southern exposure, for this wine. Attractive soft plum, herbal, floral nose with strawberry and red fruit. Bright plummy acidity, integrated tannins and leathery hints. A ripe, soft and rather supple finish.
