Open That Aglianico Bottle Night


It’s the first time for me to open a bottle and to announce to all the world that I opened it. I decided to open a good bottle of Aglianico del Vulture Doc. Exactly, it’s an Aglianico del Vulture DOC Carato Venusio 2001, the winery is Cantina di Venosa. We are in Basilicata, north-est of Potenza’s province, south of Italy. Vineyards are cultivated at an average altitude of 400 metres above sea level.

Why did I choose this bottle? Actually because the occasion of Open That Bottle Night turned into an occasion as it were important! Ok, it’s always an opening day between wine lovers from all the world, let’s say virtual, but I really did it, I uncorked it with some friends of mine: and that wine was really strong, Aglianico 100%, 14% vol., a palatable red wine.

We thought well to match it with roast meat and a seasoned cheese. Uncorked in a room temperature, it was very nice to taste it and to think what to write for WineSediments at the same time. I want to do a double compliment: to Aglianico del Vulture Doc, great, and to Open That Bottle Night, great too.
