Aglianico is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is known to produce full-bodied red wines that show musky berry flavours with firm tannins and good aging potential. Even when grown in hot climates, Aglianico is capable of reaching high levels of acidity, which makes it a particularly useful vine in the Mediterranean. The structure and richness of Aglianico make it a popular grape for blending in southern Italy. In Campania, it is frequently blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the production of some IGT wines. Further east in Basilicata, the sole DOC wine in the region, Aglianico del Vulture, is produced from Aglianico grapes grown on the volcanic slopes of Monte Vulture.

Synonyms include: Agliatica, Ellenico, Ellanico, Gnanico, Uva Nera.
