Aglianico is grown in the Southern regions of Italy, mostly in Basilicata and Campania. It is regarded as one of the three greatest Italian varieties along Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, often referred to as the Barolo of the South. Aglianico is revered for producing refined and complex fine wines. The Chalmers family nursery, based in Mildura, began importing Aglianico to Australia in 1998. This grape has a great ability to retain acidity in warmer climates so expect to see more growers in Australia planting this variety. This is the lighter wine in the Italian ‘Single Suitcase’ series and perfect for warm sunny day long lunch.
