The description

Cesco di Nece is a dark, inky Aglianico that opens with aromas of dried tobacco, licorice and bitter chocolate. It's a bruiser wine with dark extraction and rock-solid structure.

100% Aglianico. Vineyards have southeast exposure and are 300 meters above sea level. The soils are a mix of limestone and clay. The grapes are tank fermented, then transferred to French oak botti for 18 months, and spend 12 months in bottle before release."

Deep ruby color. Subtle aromas of violet and gentian, developing to ripe plums. Develops further on the palate with floral notes of violet and wisteria, chestnut. Well-knit, smooth dry red that achieves a fine balance of fruit, tannins, acidity and structure. Best with substantial red-meat dishes.

The Mustilli family has been in the historic hill town of Sant'Agata de' Goti for 500 years. ("St. Agatha of the Goths" - which gives you an idea how old this beautiful place is, and why it was founded). It was in 1960 that Leonardo and his wife Marili established the present-day Mustilli winery. To this day, under the leadership of Paola and Annachiara, Leonardo's capable daughters, Mustilli uses only local grape varieties from their own vineyards - Falanghina, Piedirosso, Aglianico. With the assistance of enologo Fortunato Sebastiano, the wines are going from strength to strength.
