il Cancelliere Aglianico IGT 2015


Wine for the inner farmer, with good taste......

Il Cancelliere is situated in the heart of Montemarano about 450-600 meters above sea level, in a zone particularly suted for the Taurasi (Local D.O.C.G. designation) production. Here, the grape that dominates is Aglianico.

Soccorso Romano runs the property with his wife and son, Enrico. Enrico is well versed in agronomy, therefore he manages the vineyards. In the cellar, Soccorso is keen on the 'peasant' approach to making wine, where all processes are kept to a minimum. 

We were happy to come across a wine that didn't represent the mass-produced, commericalized side to the wine industry in Campania. 

What we tasted was like biting into a perfectly ripe wild blackberry. 100% Aglianico, full of wild, dark fruit but medium bodied, versatile and incredibly inviting.
