There has been much evidence of the fact that the aglianico was appreciated also in its “light” version. Andrea Bacci, in his “Natural History of the Wines” (1596), regarding the aglianico, talks about “not so black grapes...and juice of medium consistency”. Lancerio (historian and geographer of the XVI century, bottler of Pope Paolo III
Farnese and wine taster), speaking about the aglianico says “These wines have an intense colour, and they are better and mellower than light ones...I used to drink those wines with extreme pleasure, and they were called the wine for the older, considering its fullness”. Aglianico is a versatile grape variety that is suitable for diverse processes of production. The Rose version of the aglianico grape is a different interpretation of these grapes
and it’s to be considered an extremely interesting wine and peculiar because of its character.
