Place: Basilicata, ITA
Musto Carmelitano offers an honest, unadulterated taste of what great Aglianico can be. Beautiful, elegant and balanced, the family’s wines are a revelation.... unveiling the true soul of one of Italy’s most noble grapes. Elisabetta and her brother, Luigi guided by father Francesco are the heart of this family estate. Both young & passionate growers determined to show the true expression of older-vine Aglianico, grown on Basilicata’s unique volcanic soils in the Vulture DOC. The estate is Organic Certified and favours the use of stainless steel and cement tanks to enhance the mineral elegance of the terroir.
The Maschitano Rosso is one of our most loved wines and the 2017 release does not disappoint. It has text book red and black fruits, tobacco, spice and volcanic minerality. Medium bodied with fine-grained tannins, bright acidity and some authentic Southern Italian charm in the best possible way. Notes from the importer, Quelvino
