The wine is a bright garnet red with fragrant ripe red fruit aromas, with a strong emphasis on cherries and cranberries. The wine is good-bodied, refreshing on the palate, followed by fruity, chocolate, and spice oozing slowly, and the rest of the flavor is soft and long, which is good with red meat and mature cheese.

There is a grape in Italy known as the "Barolo of Southern Italy", that is Aglianico del Vulture. Vulture, a sub-region of Basilicata, is one of the three most recognized DOCG producing regions for Aglianico in southern Italy (upgraded to DOCG in 2011), Aglianico prefers hot and dry climates, and is one of the late-ripening grapes.
Aglianico wines from the Vulture region are typically high in tannin, full-bodied, and have long aging potential.
Aglianico Italian is a black grape grown in the southern regions of Italy, mostly Basilicata and Campania. It is considered by Sangiovese and Nebbiolo to be one of the three greatest Italian varieties. Aglianico is sometimes called "The Barolo of the South" due to its ability to produce highly refined, complex fine wines like the famous Piedmont wine, Barolo.
The Puglia region, located in the east of Italy, has a very long winemaking history and a unique local grape variety. Puglia is the second-largest wine producer in Italy, after Veneto. Puglia has always been considered one of Italy's most important wine regions.
Puglia has a Mediterranean climate, the soil is rich in calcium, and the topsoil is rich in iron, which is very suitable for grape growing. With year-round sunshine and a dry climate, Puglia is the place to be if you're looking for a red wine with ripe fruit and rich aromas.
Most Puglia red wines are ripe, full-bodied, and pair well with spiced meats. Puglia's wine producers all have one thing in common; they focus on producing indigenous grape varieties, such as Negroamaro, Primitivo, and Bombino Nero.
