In southern Italy aglianico is hailed as the noblest of red varieties. 
In Australia it has proven to produce wines of finesse, structure and elegance
in the most adverse of climatic conditions. At Chalmers the aglianico wines have
always been considered top-tier reds within the range. To reflect that the
latest planting has been established on the prized, top elevation, rocky site on
the ridge of the Mt Camel Range at the Heathcote vineyard which is similar in
characteristics to the variety‚Äôs native terroir. 

The 2011 Aglianico is vibrant, showing earthy cherry, aromatic spice and
delicate perfume on the nose.  The balanced, savoury palate shows subtle
fruitcake spices, herbal notes and candied orange rind with a pleasant
mouth-watering acidity and the fine, smooth, building tannins you would expect
of the variety.  An elegant and structured wine with excellent potential
for long ageing.
