Casa Setaro CASA SETARO TERRAMATTA AGLIANICO 2021
Setaro’s Aglianico “Terramatta” comes from own-rooted vines planted in Tirone della Guardia in Vesuvio National Park’s black volcanic sand. Fully de-stemmed and given a three-day pre-fermentation cold soak, this ferments briefly—around eight days—and spends a year settling in stainless steel before a brief passage in used oak. This aging regimen emphasizes freshness and lift, which counterbalances the variety’s inherent ruggedness appealingly.
This Aglianico expresses freshness above the meatiness or gamy notes you usually associate with this grape variety. Beautiful dark fruits with notes of blackberry, black current, and light licorice tones lead your palette toward a persistent dry terroir-driven finish. Pair with a charcuterie board, seared duck breast, or your favorite pizza.
