Aglianico | Piedirosso
Made only in the finest growing years with grapes from the vineyard of the same name, one of Villa Matilde’s oldest and best-aspected hillslope vineyards. The clusters are picked one by one by hand, then gently pressed; the must ferments on the skins for 20-25 days at about 25°C, followed by the malolactic fermentation in oak barriques. Camarato is matured in Allier oak barriques (1/3 new, 1/3 once-used, 1/3 twice-used) for 12-18 months, then a further 12-18 months in the bottle.
