With its 35-year aging period, Canneto is definitely one of the historic wines of Casa Vinicola D’Angelo. Known for being one of Southern Italy’s first wines to be refined in barriques, this is a balanced and harmonious Aglianico. A great choice for any occasion. The name comes from the numerous reeds (“canne” in Italian), found in the vineyards, which are very important for the training and growth of the vines.
