Hunch your shoulders and shave your head; it’s Vulture time! Mount Vulture, to be exact - an enormous extinct volcano in southern Italy’s Basilicata. Eons of eruptions have imbued these imposing slopes with an abundance of volcanic soil which helps the late-ripening Aglianico grape achieve the kind of structure that has earned its status as the sturdiest, most ageworthy denizen of southern Italy. The Musto Carmelitano family harvests in late November, naming this cuvée for the central Vulture town they call home.

Serving Suggestion: Kafta kabobs w/ beet, julienne carrot salad w/ walnuts & pomegranate vinaigrette. Calzone w/ black olives, shiitake mushrooms, spinach, & truffle oil.
