    2012 Ryme Cellars Aglianico Luna Matta Vineyard Paso Robles

    $59.99

    Size 750ML


    The Aglianico comes from a beautifully farmed, certified organic vineyard in Westside Paso Robles on Peachy Canyon Road. Set squarely in Rhone varietal and Zinfandel country, Luna Matta Vineyard also grows a good number of Italian varieties. And Aglianico really shines here. It ripens late and loves the heat

    VINIFICATION

    The Aglianico grapes were harvested in the middle of October. The grapes were crushed by foot and fermented without destemming or inoculation. After fermentation, the wine was pressed to neutral barriques and aged for 3 years without racking.

    TASTING NOTES

    The 2012 Aglianico is explosive and massively concentrated. The Aglianico shows a dense black core with a ruby rim in the glass. Blackberry, smoke, damp earth, and cured meat. The wine is powerfully structured with sweet coating tannins, richly fruit driven, with prominent acidity and distinct meaty umami quality.
