Selvanova Selvanova

Wine name: Selvanova
Producer: Selvanova
Vintage: 2011
Appellation: Terre del Volturno IGT
Grape Varieties: 100% Aglianico
Vineyards: planted in 2000 on the cote facing south east, on a deep argilo-calcaire soil
Winemaking: This is the top cuvée of the estate. It is made with our best Aglianico grapes. The grapes are selected after several passages in the vineyards. Selvanova ferments in a big oak cask for about 2 weeks; it is then racked in barriques to burn the last grams of sugar and to develope malolactic. It aged 23 months in oak and is bottled unfiltered.
Ageing: 23 months in barrel, 2 years in bottle
Total Production: 3600 bt
Commentary: This is what Aglianico can express when it is properly conducted. Full bodied but not overwhelming, extremely fresh and complex, deep and long; it lingers with ashes and wild stone fruits hints. This wine can easily age for 20-25 years. Chapeau !
