Aglianico Beneventano IGP
Principato Ultra was the ancient province of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies whose territory also embraced Montesarchio, the company’s headquarters. This wine is the selection of grapes of different varieties, vinified with modern systems, with a remarkable quality, in a few bottles. The dense colour and the scents that immediately invade the environment are its first two characteristics.
