The Titolo Tower is a house on the outskirts of Barile, in the North of Basilicata, immersed between vineyard and olive groves that have been tended to for 4 generations. The story of the Fucci Family, over the last few years, is one of a prestigious wine: Titolo, named after the local volcanic territory in the region. There are 7 Hecta-acres under the estate with 6 planted to vine in soil made up of volcanic lava and ash mix, known locally as “pozzolana”. The vineyards are located in the commune of Barile.
The Aglianico is de-stemmed and crushed in small batches and then fermented in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation takes place within 100% new French oak barriques and matured for 12 months. The wine is fined in the bottle for an additional 6 months before being released to the market.
The wine shows dark and intense ruby red with an ample and complex nose yielding spices, cherry, blackberry preserves, rosemary, tobacco, and cinnamon with light hints of vanilla. Dry on the palate and full-bodied with firm tannins and a long finish. Although a young wine when released, it is destined for a great future!
