Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d’Oro 2015 Aglianico displays warm spices and alluring black cherry fruit on the nose. Enticing flavors of juicy cherry entwined with plums, cranberries, holiday spice and violets coat the palate. Subtle baked spice notes adds complexity to this bold wine, while firm tannins and excellent acidity segue to an elegant, round finish. The Terra d’Oro 2015 Aglianico can be aged for up to ten years.
Vineyard Notes
Aglianico is one of the world’s oldest and most celebrated wine grapes. The varietal originated in Greece and was planted in Campania, Italy, by Greek settlers more than two thousand years ago. Away from the gilt and marble of Rome and Venice, Aglianico is still considered a noble red varietal in the provincial parts of southern Italy. In northern California, Aglianico has found a home in Amador County.
Production Notes
The wine was aged in 30% second-fill French, American and Hungarian small oak barrels for 14 months to integrate toasty oak aromas and flavors with the rich, juicy fruit of the Aglianico grape. Terra d’Oro is one only a few California producers who grow the Aglianico grape today. Traditionally planted in hillside vineyards above 1,000 feet elevation, this ancient varietal has found an ideal vineyard in the Terra d’Oro Ranch.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for the Terra d’Oro 2015 Aglianico were fermented in half-ton macro bins, extracting maximum color and flavor. The bins were punched down by hand, multiple times per day, to ensure copious extraction of the variety’s vivid flavor, while minimizing harsh tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
The rich and rustic flavors make it an ideal pairing for hearty Italian meals like spicy, thin-crust sausage pizza or braised beef topped with mushrooms and a touch of balsamic vinegar.
