The Aglianico from the Dodiciettari winery is a red grape variety that prefers predominantly sunny climates. It is an ancient vine, probably originating in Greece and introduced in Italy around the VII-VI century BC. As evidence of its long history we have the remains of a Roman press found in the area of Rionero in Vulture, in the province of Potenza. There is no certainty about the origins of the name which could date back to the ancient city of Elea (hence Eleanico), on the Tyrrhenian coast of Campania, or even just be a distortion of the word Hellenic. Historical-literary evidence on the presence of this vine can be found in Horace, who sang the qualities of this excellent wine. The original name (Elleanico or Ellenico) became Aglianico during the Aragonese domination during the 15th century. The winemaking process involves the use of 100% pure Aglianico grapes. The origin of the vineyards lies in the municipality of Torre le Nocelle in the province of Avellino. The training system used is the classic Guyot system. The density reached for each plant is about 4,000 plants per hectare of land. The maximum yield reached is 40 quintals per hectare. The harvest period falls after the first ten days of November, the harvesting method is traditional by hand. The vinification involves the maceration and fermentation at a controlled temperature of the grapes and the must in a renge between 20 ° C and 25 ° C in stainless steel vats.
