2016 Musto Carmelitano Maschitano Rosso made with 100% Aglianico from Basilicata and 100% organic. Hand-harvested at the end of November. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. Aged in tank and then for two months in bottle before release. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. The estate vineyards sit some 2,000 feet above sea level, on a mix of clay, chalk and volcanic soils, on the southern slopes of Monte Vulture. The vines are about 10-25 years.

Musto Carmelitano offers an honest, unadulterated taste of what great Aglianico can and should 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, deeply passionate vine growers determined to show the world what they feel is the true expression of older-vine Aglianico grown on Basilicata’s unique volcanic soils.
