Kinetic Aglianico - From Sunday Winemakers
|GRAPE AGLIANICO ||ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 14%|
|VINTAGE: 2018 ||REGION: ADELAIDE HILLS, AUSTRALIA|
Aglianico, know in Italy as 'The Barolo of the South', has a reputation of producing some of the biggest, most punchy wines of the Mediterranean. With 'Kinetic', From Sundays have stripped back the intervention and focused on the brighter, fruitier aspects of the wine. The mix of flavours include crunchy blueberry, rich jammy plum and an almost savoury hint of sundried tomato on the finish.
Bit of wine geekery for you: From Sundays certainly aren't a team that are afraid of experimentation and in this case they've replaced oaking and bottle ageing with carbonic maceration (a technique usually reserved for lighter grapes), which has softened the Aglianico's tannins and brought out the fruitiness.
A great choice to drink alongside cooked meats, sausages, chorizo pasta and braised lamb.
