'Naima' is one of the top wines of the estate and named for a John Coltrane song – many of the bottlings have jazz inspired names. The siblings feel Aglianico from this area is able to walk a tightrope of being powerful, but still having softer rounder tannins. Much care goes into this one. Fermented in tank, then aged for 1 year in 225L older barrels, followed by two years in 300-500L older barrels, then 1 year in stainless prior to bottling. The intensity and suaveness of the wine is enthralling. Deep berry fruit, and earthy forest floor aromas. On the palate the rich fruit shows, but so does pepper, and earth, and a dark anise tone. Striking stuff for a big meaty dish.
