Musto Carmelitano offers an honest, unadulterated taste of what great Aglianico can be. Beautiful, elegant and balanced, the family’s wines are a revelation, finally unveiling the true soul of one of Italy’s most noble grapes.
Elisabetta and her brother, Luigi, are the heart of this family estate, both young & passionate growers determined to show the true expression of older-vine Aglianico grown on Basilicata’s unique volcanic soils. For a grape that can have such power and structure, these wines have tremendous grace and finesse as well as a refreshing underlying minerality from the volcanic soils.
On opening, the wine is very ripe and generous displaying plum and fig aromas. Full bodied, hints of tobacco leaf and a slight earthiness. This is a complex wine with high acid and tannin levels.
