|When one thinks of the region of Basilicata, one thinks of Aglianico del Vulture. Michele Laluce's 13 acres of vines grow on the volcanic soils of
Ginestra’s Monte Vulture. The grapes for this wine are produced by the
Uncertified Organic Wine (Producer states they do not use artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. While we cannot prove the veracity of this, we also have no reason to believe it is not true.)
Tasting notes: Medium-bodied, seductively soft and velvety smooth on the palate, it brims with plummy, briary, unctuously rich, ripe, black cherry aromas and flavors.
