Marziacanale is a small vineyard located near Taurasi (AV), which gave its name to this wine. This is the story of a lonely vineyard, old as its origins as a volcanic land on the hill of Montefalcione, at a height of 500 meters. above sea level, stretches over seven hectares, turning southwest, with 500 plants per hectare. An Aglianico di Taurasi well balanced and structured, strongly desired by Mario and Luigi Ercolano, a wine that expresses the "terroir" Irpino, where the elements of nature permeate the tastes of a bunch of wild and unspoiled place.
Red intense.
Shows lots of coffee, chicory and chocolate on the nose, coloring the ripe, almost raisiny black fruit.
Full-bodied, with intense fruit and mineral, chewy tannins and a long finish.Full of vibrant fruit and oak, but needs a few years to mellow.

History Would seem to have been introduced by the Ancient Greeks along the Mediterranean coast at the time of the formation of colonies in Italy around VI-VII B.C. This might explain the existence of synonyms such as Ellenico, Ellenica and Ellanico which subsequently evolved into ‘Aglianico’ during the Spanish Domination of XV-XVI A.D. as the double ‘ll’ of the early name sounds like the Italian ‘gli’. There is also a hypothesis that the name derives from the Greek ‘aglianos’, clear and shining, suggesting perhaps clear and shining by contrast with other wines of Campania such as Lacrima and Mangiaguerra which are much darker. However the ancient name ‘glianico’ might also come from the Spanish ‘llano’ or plains/flat land from which might come ‘wine from the plain’ deriving from the domestication of wild vines. (Vines of Italy, Scienza, Calò, Costacurta).
