Aglianico del Vulture is considered one of the best red wines in Italy – the Barolo of the south. That's because of its elegance, many layers of complexity and ability to age. Enjoy that here in this great red crafted by a top winemaker.
Italy's noble Aglianico grape is adored for its intense, but delicate fruit and layers of complexity, which put it alongside Nebbiolo for quality. Wines from Vulture are known as ‘the Barolo of the South’ but come at a sensible price. The region lies on the slopes of the extinct volcano, Monte Vulture. Its mineral-rich soils add complexity, while high altitude (800m) means it has one of the longest growing seasons in Italy. Tre Stelle is made by a small cellar, where winemaking is overseen by Alberto Antonini – formerly in charge at the Antinori cellar. He works here with talented Dennis Verdicchia to make wines that capture the character of this unique region. Tobacco spice with fresh red fruit, it's great with slow-cooked lamb or pasta.
"For lovers of Italian wine this is exceptionally good at a price way below what you would expect"
