The Irpinia Aglianico D.O.C. of Cantina Contrada is a forceful, firm and vigorous wine, and is exclusively produced in its place of origin.
A ruddy wine, with a magnetic red colour, the Aglianico Contrada fascinates with its various bouquet: red fruits and cherry, vanilla, tabasco and coffee. With a warm taste and piquant smells, it is a round wine that shows in its flavour and smell the charm of its stay in French oak barriques.
