Tasting Notes: Black fruit, Smoke, Cherry, Cedar
Luigi Maffini's vineyards are on the coast of Campania, south of Naples, across the bay from Positano. While the family's first vines were planted in the seventies, the real beginning of this winery dates from 1996. Luigi and his wife Raffaella run the vineyards organically.
Aglianico “Cenito” is a robust, structured, well balanced, medium bodied, and intense red wine from Campania, aged for 18 months in new barriques. In the mouth this is rich and saturated with fine tannins, bold acid lift, layered black fruit, cherry and plum fruits, with cocoa and sweet spice and some earthiness, smoke, cedar and chocolate notes. Pair with aged cheeses, game, or dishes featuring red meat.
