Antica Hirpinia Aglianico

Wine Description

The story began in 1959 with the foundation of the first winery in Taurasi. Today, Antica Hirpinia is a private cellar, led by a group of friends who took over it in 2016 to realize a common dream: to produce the finest wines in the area. Their first step was to appoint Riccardo Cotarella as their enologist and Valeria Cesari as their consultant.

Tasting Notes

Gentle and flowery, with generous hints of ripe red fruits. It's a full bodied red wine, but never loud. The long finish is all played on raspberries, violets, and a surprising hint of rosemary.

Food Pairings

Perfect with red meats. It will complement pizza and most pasta dishes.
