A young winery with strong family values, Lelusi, has grown quickly and become a favorite for Basilicata wines. Situated on the slopes of Vulture, an inactive volcano, the soil composition is a mixture of volcanic cinder that is unique to the area. What separates this Aglianico from others is the creative winemaking process, this wine has gone through an extended maceration period on the must and undergone malolactic fermentation, then transferred into lightly toasted French oak barriques for another 14-16 months before final bottling. These steps and careful measurements allow the wine to develop a powerful bouquet and a deep ruby red color with a rich full-bodied structure. This wine enjoys company and is not for drinking alone, pair it with lamb, game and strong cheeses.

I had tried Aglianico's in the past but mostly from Campania, this was the first I've had from Basilicata and I really enjoyed it. Complex, long finish with great flavors, glad I decided to give it a try.
