  • Aglianico is a black grape grown in Southern Italy, mainly in Campania and Basilicata. In Basilicata it is made into a wine called Aglianico del Vulture, because the best vineyards are located in and around Mount Vulture, the extinct volcano in the northern area of the province of Potenza. The wine was awarded Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status in 1971 and the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) status in 2011. It is the region’s only DOCG wine.

    Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a red wine made in the ruggedly mountainous region of Abruzzo in east-central Italy. It should not be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a similarly named wine made in Tuscany.

    Morellino di Scansano is a red wine that does not get the recognition it deserves.Often overlooked because of the popularity of other wines based on the Sangiovese grape from Tuscany, Morellino di Scansano is a much better value for the money.
