Red of Aglianico

"Damaschito is an excellent, age-worthy, substantial red wine from an older single vineyard from the Maschito area of Vulture. The soil here is volcanic and particularly rich in iron and manganese, thus giving it a reddish hue which you can observe in the slideshow above. After the Piccin’s first year of production in Vulture, they noticed how the grapes from the oldest part of their Maschito vineyard had “a clear taste and a precise soul, describing perfectly the place where it came from,”. They decided then to make a new label, a cru, from those vines only. The color of the soil from this site is mirrored by the color of this wine’s label. Shows ripe cherry, leather, tobacco, and licorice notes. Brilliant with prime rib or grilled lamb. Enjoy now or age 10-15 years." -Oliver McCrum
