Porconero means "black pig" and is considered the best friend of the man, indeed, and of the table.

A versatile and modern wine, born from native Cilento wine varieties growing in the vineyards between Stio and Giungano in a hilly-mountainous terroir rich in minerals, with an ideal solar exposure and the persistent influences of the sea. Features that give the wine a wide and full bouquet of flavours. And for Aglianico, this is wonderfully drinkable and not too tannic (as is often the case).

"Aglianico grapes from the organically-farmed vineyard of Cannito about 175 metres above sea level are employed to make this spicy red. Hand-harvested from vines that were planted in the late 1990s, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, unoaked, the wine is aged for about a year prior to bottling. The nose shows fresh dark fruit aromas with sweet spicy notes, the palate is fruit-driven, spicy and quite full-bodied."
