90pts, Wine Spectator
Ripe black raspberry and mulberry fruit is set in the balanced, medium-bodied frame of this fresh red, with savory accents of smoke, spice, wild herb and forest floor lingering on the firm finish. Drink now through 2023.

91pts, Vinous
Deep ruby-red. Fresh fruity aromas and flavors of blueberry, candied violet and tar have a bright, focused quality. Long and juicy on the smooth finish, which features repeating violet nuances. Lovely Aglianico that is ready to drink now but can age.

Hailing from Southern Italy's Mount Vulture, the extinct volcano in Basilicata, the vines here are grown in rich, obviously volcanic soils where the resulting wines are strong, powerful and full of in-your-face juicy red fruits and savory spice notes.

This Aglianico is bursting with cherries, raspberries and mulberries and notes of violets, wild savory herbs, forest floor, anise and woodsmoke. The wine is jam-packed with flavor all while being in lovely balance and delivering an excellent finish.

91pts on a wine that we scored for you at 60% off retail doesn’t come around all the time. Get it while you can! And get some pizzas ready!

TASTING NOTES 

Juicy cherries, raspberries and mulberries with notes of violets, wild savory herbs, forest floor, anise and woodsmoke. Excellent depth of flavor all while staying in balance and delivering an excellent finish.
