Terre degli Svevi Re Manfredi is a powerful and vibrant wine made from Aglianico, which is capable of making full-bodied, structured reds that share much with Barolo. This inky, ruby red draws you in with its complex aromas of sour cherry and aromatic herbs, as well as hints of vanilla and pepper. It's certainly a gutsy wine, but is not lacking in finesse, with notes of elegant spice and subtle creaminess. Balanced, impressive and a great wine to serve with Sunday Dinner.
One of the best vintages in the last twenty years. A mild spring followed by a very warm summer meant a product of the highest quality with no phytosanitary problems. The grapes were harvested between the end of October and the start of November in a state of perfect ripeness.
