Powerful, with concentrated black fruit and vanilla character.
Full-bodied, with robust but well-integrated tannins, giving a surprisingly silky feel to the palate. The finish is long and balanced. Modern, built to age, with loads of oak.

History It seems to have been introduced by the Greeks along the Tyrrhenian coast, at the time of the foundation of their colonies VI-VII century B.C. This could explain the presence of synonyms such as Hellenic, Hellenic and Hellenic, later changed into Aglianico, during the Spanish domination (XV-XVI century) for which the "double l" pronounced in Italian, sounds "gli". There is also a hypothesis that the name of the vine derives from the Greek aglianos: chiaro e agliaia splendente. Therefore, clear and shining wines to distinguish it from other Campania wines such as Lacrima and Mangiaguerra, much darker. Moreover, the ancient name "glianico" could be traced back to the Spanish "llano- piano/pianura" from which "grapes of the plain" and therefore originated from the domestication of wild vines ("Vitigni d'Italia" Scienza, Calò, Costacurta).
