Mastroberardino ‘Redimore’ Aglianico Irpinia
Tastes Like: Blackberry, Coffee, Spice
With a winemaking history dating back to the early 18th century, the Mastroberardino family are some of the early pioneers of viticultural success in Campania’s remote Irpinia area. Known as the ‘guardians of ancient varieties’, the estate played an instrumental role in bringing near-extinct indigenous grapes like Aglianico back onto the world stage.
Their 2017 RediMore starts off with a polished bouquet of black berry, red fruit, and coffee, leading into elegantly layered flavors of spice, vanilla, and tobacco. One year in oak rounds out the wine’s robust tannin structure, and a lip-smackingly long finish makes this the purest representation of Aglianico and everything we expected from these maestros.
