Giornata French Camp Aglianico (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
A wine with character, soul and a bit of gentle grunt.
This block of Aglianico at French Camp Vineyard thrives in one of the warmest sections of the Paso Robles AVA. Nevertheless, it is often the last fruit to be picked in any given harvest, it ripens slowly, and retains beautiful freshness and acidity at relatively low sugars. Thick-skinned and intense, its brooding dark fruit dominates flavours produced early in fermentation. The wine undergoes a wild ferment and then aged in French oak for 12 months (10% new).
The nose is bold with complex aromas of black fruits, leather, game and spice. Ripe balckberry fruit character comes to the fore on the palate, giving way to savoury flavours of game and garrigue. The wine has great structured tannins but is immensely approachable now.
This wine begs for grilled red meat – particularly lamb.
