We made this Winemaker's Reserve Aglianico bold red wine from the Aglianico grapes sourced from the Oswald Vineyard near Brownfield, Texas in the Texas High Plains AVA. It is enchanting bold red wine. 

Aglianico is an ancient grape variety, perhaps the oldest being made into wine. It came to Italy from Greece before the first century AD. Commented on by Pliny the Elder of Roman times, it may be the wine enjoyed by the rulers and citizens of Rome and the Roman solders. Its traditional home is Southern Italy where it grows nearby to a local volcano in the Basilicata region. However, we source our Aglianico  grapes from the Oswald Vineyard in the High Plains of Texas, near Brownfield.  Which, by the way, is not unlike a volcano, if you've ever been to Texas!

Winemaker Notes
Our 2014 winemaker's reserve Aglianico (ahl-YAH-nee-ko) was made from premium grapes harvested from the Oswald Vineyard near Brownfield, Texas. The fall was cool and dry allowing the grapes to hang to full ripeness and flavor. Once harvested, the grapes were gently destemmed, crushed and fermented in open-topped stainless steel vats where the temperature was kept below 85F. This produced a slow fermentation resulting in the full extraction of its beautiful garnet red color and dark fruit flavors.
Food Pairing Notes
Serves well with center cut filet, buttery prime rib, rosemary-rubbed pork tenderloin, or your favorite Barbeque
