The Red Anfora magnum is red wine of Cantina Giardino is vinified with Aglianico. Long maceration on skin in amphora, no filtration and no sulphite added.
Pours an inky purple colour in the glass with a lot of smoky and animal notes. On the palate it was heavier than most of the red wines I’ve been drinking recently and definitely had a decent tannic grip. It was still quite juicy with lots of blackberry fruit.
That signature funky smell, but delicious in the mouth. A blend of mainly Aglianico but a portion of Barbera and Piedirosso too, it's aged in an old sandstone amphora. Lots of blueberries and blackberries with that volcanic minerality driving through with a decent body and pepper undertones. Lots of tannin and lots of yum.
