RED

Aglianico del Vulture
DOC

100% Aglianico del Vulture 

The DOC entry wine of Casa Vinicola D’Angelo is Aglianico del Vulture, a delicious red to enjoy to the very last sip. In the first years, this Aglianico wine may appear a little vivacious or even sharp, however, over time, as it refines in the bottle, it becomes more mellow and harmonious. It goes very well with all meat courses and flavourful or not too sophisticated dishes.
