2022 Aglianico

Award Winner

When we first planted Aglianico we wanted to create a wine with complexity! There is no better way to infuse complexity into a wine by using different clones of the same grape variety. For many years there has only been one clone of Aglianico in Australia, but in recent time the importation of new clones have provided new options. 


The Story

The Ricca Terra Aglianico is a blend of the Vulture and Taurus clones. The clones creates a wine that has a deep colour and rich flavours. Assisting these new clones in how they are managed! They are hand pruned and hand picked and placed in cold storage immediately after being harvested. 

Once in the winery, a portion of the delivered grapes are not crushed, rather the whole/uncrushed bunches are added to the ferment, which adds complexity to the final wine. The use of natural yeast strains, which originate from the vineyard, heightens the excitement of this wine.

Grown using sustainable farming practices and vegan friendly.
