Sold out

A journey across the south to explore the Aglianico grape, a red varietal found mostly in the regions of Campania and Basilicata. 

We’ll taste Aglianico del Vulture, a variety of Aglianico from Basilicata here represented by Grifalco, Aglianico del Taburno by Fontanavecchia, Irpinia Aglianico by Pietracupa, and Cilento Aglianico by Luigi Maffini. An itinerary that takes us through some of the finest red wine denominations in the south of Italy. 

To pair, we have caciocavallo and mozarellas from the same regions. From Mozzarella in Myrtle, Slow Food Presidium, a fresh caciocavallo made with raw cow milk; Basilicata Caciocavallo Podolico, which is subject to long aging periods, especially for the larger forms that weigh from four to eight kilos; and a caciocavallo from Campania by Latterie Gargiulo of Gragnano.
