Bold, earthy - Campania's noble graps!
Irpinia is one of the finest wine regions in Campania -- steep slopes, volcanic soil, and warm climate make for a perfect setting for Aglianico, the region's noble grape.  Contrada ages this bold red 10 months in oak and an additional 8 months in bottle before release. The result is a structured red with good tannins, a long finish, and deep mouthfeel. Scents of wild blackberries and wild cherries mingle with spicy, earthy tar, and cedar. It showcases full flavors of dark red berries, strawberry jam, and tobacco -- a deep and satisfying red!

Bigger flavors for bigger meals!  Roasts, grilled meats.
