Vesevo Beneventano Aglianico is an exceptional red wine with a unique and complex profile that is deeply rooted in the sun-kissed soils of Southern Italy's Campania region. This rich, ruby red wine is made from 100% Aglianico grapes, which are harvested at the peak of ripeness to ensure maximum flavor and depth. The nose is dominated by aromas of dark plum, blackberry, and hints of tobacco and black pepper. The palate is equally impressive with flavors of sour cherry, dried herbs, and spicy oak. The wine has a full body, with a tannic structure that is balanced by a bright acidity, culminating in a long and satisfying finish. This wine is perfect to enjoy with hearty meat dishes, roasted vegetables, and aged cheeses.
This wine is ruby red in colour, with a complex and intense nose of red cherries, raspberries and cranberries, which continue through onto the palate. The wine has firm yet smooth tannins with a lingering spicy finish and hints of vanilla.
About the Winery
If you are looking for authentic but a diverse range of Italian wines that reflect the complex characters of their terroirs, you must try one of the many wine labels released by the Fantini Farnese group. This group started as a small winery to make wines that exhibited the best of the South Italian heritage. However, within a few years, it has grown to be a huge wine brand in the country.
There are 6 exclusive wine regions where the Fantini Farnese group sources its grapes from. These regions have very different geological characters, climate conditions and other features. Therefore, the fruits grown here are quite different in taste, aroma, texture and intensity in different regions. The Vesevo range of wines is one of the labels of wines produced by this group.
The red and white Vesevo label of wines are made from grape cultivated in the Campania region. It is one of the oldest wine regions and has over 25000 hectares of vines in it. This area is covered by 50% hills, 30% mountains and 20% plains. This diversity influences the quality of fruits grown here. Since the area of cultivation is quite huge, different viticultural practices are followed by the winegrowers here.
