Aglianico is a red wine grape known for its ability to retain high levels of acidity, even in hot climates. It is native to southern Italy, specifically the regions of Campania, Basilicata and Molise. The grape is known for producing tannic, concentrated wines that benefit from aging. In Campania, it is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the production of IGT wines. Aglianico's prime expression is found in Taurasi DOCG, where it forms the majority of wines produced under the denomination. The grape is also found in the Aglianico del Taburno and Aglianico del Vulture DOCGs. Aglianico has also been trialed in warm climates such as California and Australia.
