2018 Aglianico del Vulture 'SCEG'


In 2016, Elena Fucci purchased some fruit from four nonagenarian friends of her grandfather and began experimenting with making wine from a vineyard other than her own. This 2018 is her first release of Sceg, a local word for pomegranate, which is a symbol of fertility and good luck. Although it�s more rustic than her Titolo, Sceg shows impressive concentration and acidity. The product of 70-year-old vines, its smoke-tinged flavors of blackberry and licorice maintained freshness for four days after the bottle was opened.
