The history of the age-worthy Aglianico grape dates back to pre-Roman times. While it can be found all over Southern Italy, the small town of Taurasi in the Campania region, produces an Aglianico very different from the rest. The territory contains volcanic soils that seem to date back to the beginning of time. With a history so deep, so rich, it is just that a wine of the same depth rise from its soil.
