RED

Caselle
DOC

100% Aglianico del Vulture 

When tradition and hard-earned knowledge are combined with one of the oldest and most important red vine varieties of Southern Italy, the result is simply excellent, or, the result is “Caselle”. Plenty of tipicity and elegance for this Aglianico del Vulture, which also has great character and personality. First kept in concrete tanks for two years, Caselle is then left to rest in large barrels for another two years. Finally, the bottling and another year of aging. This is a very enjoyable Aglianico right from the beginning, however, if you find a bottle in your cellar after a few years, be ready for even more wonderful surprises. Caselle is a benchmark for all great red wines of Southern Italy.
