Trivia: Aglianico is an ancient vine, native of Greece and introduced in Italy in the VII-VI century BC. An evidence of its long history is the discovery of the remains of the “torcular” (a Roman wine press) in the area between Campania and Lucania, used to extract the remaining sauce in the pomace after being pounded with the feet. It was an heavy boulder lifted with a lever under which the bunches of grapes were closed in a punnet (From a greek bas-museum of Naples).
