2010 Aglianico
2010 Aglianico

Aglianico, a historic grape dating to the seventh century BC, is prized by winemakers for its concentrated, vibrant, black fruit. One of the best kept secrets of its native Italy, Aglianico enjoys the sunshine of the Campania and Basilicata regions of Southern Italy. Seghesio Family Vineyards farms a small amount of this Noble varietal on the hillside of our Sisters vineyard on the Home Ranch in Alexander Valley. There, the warm, sun-filled days parallel that of its home in Italy.

Tasting Notes
Delicate aromas of crushed berries and rose petals. Intriguing core of dark berry fruit flavors, with gravelly loam mineral notes. Extended barrel aging imparts French oak’s spice component. Slightly chewy, yet integrated tannins typify Aglianico’s savory nature. Youthful, yet possesses all of the attributes that will reward those who have patience.


Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and serpentine rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, which both force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
