(6) - 2015 Villa Capri Aglianico, Puglia, Italy, 750ml

2015 Villa Capri Aglianico, Puglia, Italy
Aromas of intense red fruits, leather, and pepper waft from this wine.  The palate is robust, with layered notes of black and red cherry, plum, game, and white pepper leading up to a dry, lasting finish.

Food Pairing: With its high tannins and acidity, Aglianico is a great pairing for rich meats with high fat content such as oxtail, venison, and rabbit.  Umami rich dishes such as tempeh and black beans will also accompany this wine well.

Vineyards: The Villa Capri resides on the crest of a hillside in Puglia, Italy.  Located in the "heel" of Italy, the Puglia growing region is the home of Aglianico.  This full-bodied grape is native to southern Italy and produces concentrated wines with balanced acidity, even when grown in hot conditions.  Vintage 2015 was certainly a test of that, with a hot, dry growing season that included the hottest month on record.  Despite these extremes, the 15-year-old Aglianico vines flourished.  As a native grape, Aglianico prefers hot and dry conditions, growing in well-draining sand soil.  The vines also managed to escape the excessive heat due to vineyard elevation of 100 meters.  Although not very high, the slight elevation allows for sea breezes from the Adriatic Sea to help ease high daytime temperatures.  A slow-ripening variety, these grapes were harvested on October 10th.  A 10-day maceration period followed by stainless steel fermentation preserve primary fruit characteristics to shine through in an approachable style.

AW Direct

Owner:
Bruce Cunningham
Founded:
1987
Location:
Santa Rosa, California

Founder and CEO, Bruce Cunningham, has been in the wine industry since 1987. After earning an undergraduate degree in Wine Marketing Studies at the University of Adelaide (South Australia), Bruce attended business school and has been involved in many aspects of the industry with a specific focus in packaging and production. After relocating to New York from Australia, he saw the need for custom labels of Australian wines for direct marketing needs in the USA. A W Direct (formerly Aussie Wine Direct), was born. This focus on a market segment was, at the time embryonic, and quickly led to further expansion of both suppliers and various segments of the wine market.

A W Direct relocated to California in 2004, and the team expanded, led by the formidable talents of his business partner, Kimberly Cunningham. Kim - an engineer, and techno-geek at heart - with her experience in running divisions of some of the world’s largest companies, was able to build systems to help create the efficiency needed to allow A W Direct to grow, but also compete in a wine world that can be inflexible and intolerant. As the company grew, Kim enhanced the business by developing a successful team of energetic, challenge-driven people who have the right “moxie” to keep our well-oiled machine running smoothly.
