To preserve their vines and tradition, Elena Fucci makes this special wine from his friends’ vines, four parcels near her family’s vineyards, and vines aged 70+ years. SGEC (pronounced Sheg) is organically farmed Aglianico, spending one year in 500L tonneaux and 6 months in bottle before release.
The wine has an alluring violet and dusky blueberry perfume that opens this fuller wine gripped with wild cassis, blackberry, dried thyme, and ample stony minerality. Tannins are firm, lightly grippy, and well-integrated, shaping this streamlined wine to a lingering spiced finish. The altitude and soils imbue a natural freshness to this wine. Drinking very well now and will continue for the next few years in your cellar.
Accompany this wine with BBQ meats, grilled beef, lamb, game, fatty pork, and charcuterie meats such as prosciutto, Tuscan salami, pancetta, smoked meat, cold cuts, and sausages.
