2017 San Martino Siir Aglianico del Vulture - Basilicata, Italy (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (12)|
The high elevation and gravelly volcanic soils of Mount Vulture in Basilicata are ideally suited for one of Southern Italy's finest black grape varietals, Anglianico. Winemaker Lorenzo Piccin focuses solely on this ancient varietal, practicing organic farming in his vineyards and working with a light touch in his cellars to allow each vintage to express itself fully. Siir is a medium-bodied wine with a bright acidity and easy tannins, with notes of black and red stone fruit along with hints of tobacco and mixed spice. Pairs perfectly with a garlic, rosemary roasted leg of lamb.
