Introducing Hilmy Cellars exquisite Aglianico 2021. The nose delights with an abundance of cherry and plum notes, leading to a fruit-forward and inviting experience. With a balanced 12.4% alcohol content, this wine hails from the esteemed Veesart Vineyards, offering a lighter, more acidic red profile.
Pair this Aglianico 2021 with hearty, meaty dishes featuring a touch of richness, or complement its acidity with bold cheeses like blue and stinky varieties. It's a wine that beautifully balances fruitiness with a touch of acidity.
Crafted with a minimalist approach to oak aging, this Aglianico 2021 showcases the true essence of the varietal. In comparison to the more oak-forward Mourvèdre, enthusiasts of this style will find this Aglianico 2021 to be a softer, equally balanced choice.
