Aglianico, one of Southern Italy’s most noble varieties, finds its ideal habitat on the Masseria Altemura Estate, where the ‘pietra viva’ or ‘rugged stone’ enabes the wine to express all its extraordinary power and aromatic complexity. Petravia is a highly concentrated red wine with prominent tannins that can evolve from its early roundness and youthful exuberance – where the fruit emerges with vitality – to greater elegance and austerity, the distinctive traits of maturity in fine Aglianico wines.

Aglianico is a red grape that is grown mainly in the Basilicata and Campania. It was introduced more than 2500 years ago by the Greeks as vitis hellenica to Campania and spread up to Puglia and Basilicata. This vine produces well-structures and full-bodied wines with intense tannins and a strong acid. The wines need, because of the high tannin content, some years of maturity to develop their high quality.
