D'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture 2017
Other Reds | Italy
Just in, the 2019 version of this wine is Wine Spectator's #49 wine of 2022! We’ve been importing this directly for years, from the moment we tasted it we know we had to get as much as we could. The winery concentrates on various single-vineyard expressions of the aglianico grape, and possesses some of the oldest and most important cru vineyards on the volcano, benefitting from impeccable exposure and high elevation, as well as mineral rich volcanic soils. Tucked into the heart of the Basilicata region, their entry level wine is a blend of the fruit left over from the sorting table that make the estate's single vineyard bottlings, and has been hailed as one of the best quality-for-price aglianico available. We agree, the taste-per-dollar here is through the roof! Grab a 6-pack and drink this with all types of meaty fare, like rack of lamb or roasted rabbit.
Utterly delicious, as always, with so much crunchy red fruit, ultra-fresh with red cherry and red raspberry, pomegranate, and lightly toasted spices, wonderful length and structure too...just fantastic! Get it while it’s here!
