Tasting Notes

Eremo San Quirico is the winery’s top red wine, made with 100% aglianico grapes sourced from an old vineyard that carries the same name. It is a deeply concentrated wine, ruby red in color. Rich and full on the palate, smooth with aromas of red fruit, cherries and spices. This is aglianico in its purest form and it will be best enjoyed with red meat dishes, game, aged cheeses and rich, hearty meals.

This wine was rated 99 points by Italian wine critic Luca Maroni on his ‘Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani’ for four consecutive years (2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 vintages). The 2009 vintage Eremo San Quirico was named overall the best red wine of the year.
