CAMPANIA I.G.T. AGLIANICO Rafè
Red wine with great personality, bright ruby red color with orange reflections, the Campania Aglianico “Rafè” represents the highest expression of the Bellaria production, our best interpretation of the Aglianico grape.
Extracted from an area delimited within our ancient Aglianico vineyards, located in the area of taurasi. Harvest and selection of strictly manual grapes, it contains all the harmony of the great Irpini red wines.
Round, fruity bouquet with hints of cherry and sour cherry, in the mouth has notes of cinnamon and vanilla and a perfectly balanced aftertaste without any deburring.
The orange veins, with the passage of time, enrich the amaranth shade always accentuating its strong aroma.
Fermented in steel tanks, aged in French oak barriques for a period of at least 12 months, the Campaign Aglianico “Rafè” is a unique wine, the best Aglianico Bellaria, with a full-bodied, warm and velvety flavor
