"Cappellaccio" expresses the full potential of Aglianico grown on the limestone hills of the DOC Castel del Monte. Its important structure is refined from aging in French oak for 12 months, balanced by fresh acidity typical of the variety. Its elegant bouquet, harmonious and complex make it suitable to accompany savory meat and mature cheeses. Serve at cellar temperature.
