“Terramatta”, Aglianico, Campania Rosso
Setaro’s Aglianico “Terramatta” comes from own-rooted vines planted in Tirone della Guardia in Vesuvio National Park’s black volcanic sand. Fully de-stemmed and given a three-day pre-fermentation cold soak, this ferments briefly—around eight days—and spends a year settling in stainless steel before a brief passage in used oak. This aging regimen emphasizes freshness and lift, which counterbalances the variety’s inherent ruggedness in an appealing manner.
