The Story: Located in the heart of Montemarano, Il Cancelliere was founded by Soccorso Romano, from which he inherits the nickname, and is family-run. The winery is born from the desire to lift the reputation of the fruits of their own land and work by rediscovering ancient winemaking traditions. The experience of Soccorso and his wife as wells the agronomic knowledge of their son Enrico yield a winemaking process based on the art of wine as practiced by peasants of the region for generations. It's a tradition which Soccorso learned from his father, in collaboration with the winemaker Antonio di Gruttola.Why You'll Love Me: Aglianico may not have the reputation of Nebbiolo, but it's every bit as elegant as wines from Barolo or Barbaresco. Rich and smooth, this wine is unfiltered and presents rich notes of black cherry, smoke and pepper up front. Full-bodied, it unspools luxuriously with hints of leather and dusty tannins on the finish, making for a decadent glass perfect for cool evenings.
