San Salvatore Jungano Aglianico, Paestum

San Salvatore Jungano Aglianico, Paestum

Named Jungano, the local dialect name for the town of Giungano where the winery is located, this spicy red is made from the indigenous Aglianico variety; the organically-grown grapes are grown in the Cannito vineyard close to the sea. Fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, the wine is aged for about a year in large oak barriques and then in bottle after blending for six months prior to release. Deep, intense purple-red, the nose shows integrated fresh ripe mulberry and hedgerow fruit with spicy, cinnamon oak coming through on the finish.
