NOTES: Maschitano means “of Maschito,” the town where the family lives;
this high-altitude village sits literally in the center of the Vulture area.
Musto Carmelitano offers an honest, unadulterated taste of what great Aglianico can and should be. Beautiful, elegant and balanced, the family’s wines are a revelation, finally unveiling the true soul of one
of Italy’s most noble grapes. Elisabetta and her brother, Luigi, are the heart of this family estate, both young, deeply passionate vine growers determined to show the world what they feel is the true expression of older-vine Aglianico grown on Basilicata’s unique volcanic soils.
Elisabetta selects ripe fruit of younger vines from the family’s three organic vineyards, all located at 2,000 feet above sea level on the southern slopes of Monte Vulture. Racy, tangy red fruit flavors, with violet/lavender aromas and suave tannins. Maschitano means “of Maschito,” the town where the family lives and their cantina is located.
