The 2018 Aglianico I Viaggiatori is the result of a long and careful winery selection process of the Aglianico from the more than 100-year-old vineyard. The vineyard is located in the area of the High Valley of Paternopoli (Irpinia)-600 meters above sea level; a vineyard with plants up to 200 years old.
The wine is harmonious, elegant and lively. The nose is extremely complex, secondary and tertiary notes are perfectly linked, giving complexity and depth to the aroma. This Aglianico underwent a long aging in wood before being bottled to complete its refinement.
It is a long and persistent wine, pleasant and rich, with great sapidity and acidity, typical varietal characteristics of Aglianico from the Upper Taurasi Valley.
Joaquin’s I Viaggiatori has an intense and vibrant ruby color.
Tones of red and dark berries, brushwood, aromatic herbs, coffee, with hints of licorice and wild fennel.
On the palate, the wine is enveloping, balanced, fresh and persistent. The tannins are silky and perfectly integrated. The sip is full, the tannins are compact and there is a ripe texture. Finally, the notes observed on the nose return on the palate with the addition of sweet spices.
