The products entitled "I Mille Per" signed by the famous winemaker Ricardo Cotarella, is the result of an interesting project carried out by several producers in Campania. It was decided to impose a very strict experimental production protocol, which aims to investigate the possibilities of long aging for some of the most representative regional native vines. In this case, the Aglianico is the fruit of this journey. The must ferments in stainless steel, macerating on the skins for 22 days with daily pumping, while the malolactic fermentation takes place in barrique. The subsequent refinement phase lasts 14 months and takes place in Allier and Tronçais barriques. An intense and persistent Sannio DOC, which demonstrates the foresight of the project undertaken by La Guardiense.This outstanding wine is made with 100% Aglianico Made in Sannio Beneventano in Campania.
This unique project of its kind, called "The Thousand for Aglianico", with clear reference to the approximately one thousand members of "La Guardiense" which with passion and commitment have always ventured with challenging choices aimed at improving production processes both in the vineyard and in the cellar.

The wine has a deep almost impenetrable red color. The spicy perfume is reminiscent of small red fruit. powerful and intense, with a silky though strong tannic structure that enhances a very persistent finish.
Perfect with second courses of red meat and game, It gives the best of itself with a wild boar stew.

93 point Luca Maroni, 3 stars in the yearbook of best Italian wine 2019.

5 of 5 A not well known, but fantastic wine!! July 23, 2020
Reviewer: Mark Walen from New Orleans, LA United States  
This wine will certainly not disappoint. Most people may not not know this varietal but should. It is considered on of the 3 greatest Italian varietals along with Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, The skin is very dark and the juice is very luscious with dark fruits. This is a must try for everyone!!

5 of 5 This Aglianico is the king of Southern wines. June 14, 2020
Reviewer: John Coffman from Chicago IL United States  
black-fruit flavors without being heavy, overly tannic, or too oaky. Blackberry and cranberry flavors are carried by good acidity and moderate tannins that give it an appetizing grip.
