Grape: Aglianico. 

For those of us who are a fan of rustic, earth-driven wines, Aglianico is a star. Campole is bold & structured, grown on volcanic soil with a fairly good presence of minerals that give the wine  pronounced savoury notes hints of cured and smoked meats, game, pepper. On the palate expect also sweeter notes such as black cherry, plums, and tart berries high amount of tannins. 

 

Food Pairing

Needless to say, a pairing of Aglianico with smoky BBQ is a match made in heaven. The high acidity will really bring out the flavours of BBQ sauce. In fact, the meaty notes of Aglianico are a great match for a number of rich meats such as a prime rib, venison, rabbit, and oxtail. When it comes to vegetables, focus on dishes that can match the saltiness of the wine. Mushrooms, beans, and kale are all ideal pairings.
