Elena Fucci, 'Verha' Aglianico Rosso 2022

Availability: In stock


From woman winemaker extraordinaire, Elena Fucci, comes this lighter take on Aglianico. Meant for everyday drinking, this is a fantastic gateway wine if you're seeking a red that can take a slight chill, while still carrying a classic tannic structure. 

+ GRAPE: Organic. 100% younger-vine Aglianico. Grown in volcanic soil at a high elevation in Basilicata, southern Italy. 

+ PAIRINGS: This dry, medium-bodied red shows best with food such as spicy salume, bolder cheeses, or anything off the grill. 

+ FUNDAMENTALS: Grapes are 100% destemmed. Wild yeast, all stainless steel fermentation and aging. Minimal use of sulfur, at bottling. 

Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media is spot on here: 
'The 2022 Rosso is dark, floral and understated, with a pretty blend of black tea, citrus peel and blackberries. It is soft and round with floral and spicy notes that emphasise ripe wild berries. The 2022 retains its fantastic energy and finishes with a delicious savoury note and blood orange. The Verha is a young Aglianico from Elena Fucci that excels in every respect - 90 Points.'
