”Wonder of the World”, in Latin language, was the nickname of Frederick II of Swabia,
the great medieval Holy Roman emperor who ruled these lands and to whom is dedicated
our top wine.
This Aglianico Cru comes from old vines of Piani dell’Incoronata vineyards, 50 years old,
in Melfi, on a volcanic soil at the feet of mount Vulture, at an altitude of 550 metres.
Vine type: 100% Aglianico yeld per vine: about 1 kg.
Training system:: Guyot Alcol: 14% vol
Weather pattern year 2014: rainy and cool summer till early September, then the sun
brought back summer temperatures till end of Octobe, time of harvest. Low production
but high quality at the end.
Wine making process: Hand made harvest – on chests – during the last week of october.
Maceration over skins for 14 days in small steel containers at controlled temperature in
tuff caves at natural humidity and steady temperature. After malolactic fermentation, it is
placed in tonneaux where it stays for 12 months. Once bottled, it requires bottle refining
for at least 24 months.
Colour :Rubin red, very intense
Bouquet: complex to the nose, where predominates an underwood and red ripe fruit
flavour linked to some elegantly spiced notes, very persistent
Taste: rich of velvety tannins, pulpy, well balanced.
Food coupling: A great “conversation” wine. To be combined with pasta dishes with
ragout, with game and roasts.
Excellent also to exalt the unique taste of the “caciocavallo podolico” (a local cheese) and
of seasoned cheeses in general
