In Campania’s southern province of Salerno, is Cilento, an area rich with the history of ancient Greek culture and far from the normal tourist routes. Here in the village of Rutino, accompanied by nine four legged companions, Salvatore Magnoni crafts two wines from the noble Aglianico grape in a rustic 15th century villa. Occasionally referred to as Nebbiolo of the south, Aglianico is thick skinned and long lived, rich with black fruit, smoke and a deep earthy character. Rosso del Ciglio is Salvatore’s entry level wine, farmed organically and made naturally with native yeast, minimal sulfur and modest oak. Pair with meat and eggplant.
