Aglianico, native to Campania in Italy, is grown here on pretty much my favourite bit of dirt at Kersbrook, in the northern Adelaide Hills. Kersbrook is one of the warmest parts of the Hills and so lends itself to these Southern Italian varieties so well.
About the Wine
This Aglianico Rosato is the perfect accompaniment to any picnic or lunch.
The fruit is grown in Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills, specifically for the purposes of producing Rosato. It has a beautiful colour and is wonderfully aromatic; it almost feels like it's batting its eyes at you from the glass. As the Rosato/Rosé revolution marches on it Australia, it's wines like this from interesting varieties that are really cutting through.
Complex, cheeky and impossible not to love, the La Prova Rosato should be on the hit-list of any fan of interesting and classy pink wines.
