The Delite winery operates within the territory of Irpinia, ideally suited to the production of Aglianico. Six hectares of vineyard enjoy the best hilly exposure in the Calore Valley, and are passionately cared for by the family company right through to vinification. The volcanic soil, covered by a strata of clay rich in potassium gives the vine its essential elements. By gradually releasing water to the vines, the clay promotes an unhurried and balanced grape maturation throughout the summer months. It is on the hills of Montemarano, in the territory of Irpinia, where the company is located, that the triumph of Aglianico is celebrated as ‘A grape with particular characteristics that acquires its specific identity only when it becomes wine’. The characteristics of the territory give Aglianico a significant tannic load, making it necessary to wait at least 4 to 5 years in order to fully appreciate the great aromatic and polyphenolic richness of this great wine.
