For the wine snob: 100% Aglianico grape which is native to southern Italy and is the dominate red varietal for this region. Grapes are selected by hand, controlled temperature fermentation in stainless steel. Matured 8 months in stainless steel and aged from 3 up to 36 months from release. My goal is to produce authentic wines without extremisms. Therefore my wines are filtered, I use selected yeasts, I add sulfites to the minimum extent necessary and I will not try to convince you that a defect is to be understood instead as a distinctive feature of a wine.
For the rest of us: A young Aglianico to drink now, and every day. Ruby red with violets, plum and cherries on the nose. The palate shows balanced freshness and acidity with soft tannins. The name Brizio is a tribute to the winemaker’s great grandmother, Carolina Brizio. Pair this red with grilled meats, lamb or bold red sauce dishes.
