Winemaker and wine lover.
Pleasantly surprised how well this has held up after a dozen years or so in bottle, even on day two it’s still singing. This was 93-points Parker back in the day and it still shows bountiful energy - sweet black plum and fig along with lots of fun savory flavors like black tea, anise and licorice. And I have a couple more left... — 20 days ago
The Aglianico, while only 10% of the blend, really shines through. Pencil shavings, leather, and maybe a hint of Brett dominate the nose at first, though eventually with time and air it opens up to reveal some black currant and black plum. Solidly structured with tannins that held up to a tomahawk ribeye even after all this time in bottle. Fun bottle. — 17 days ago
