Riserva Aglianico del Vulture 2012

9.1

Drank 3/13/19. Excellent pairing with grilled lamb chops.

A big, dark brooding wine. Plenty if dark fruit, soil, tar, and firm, well integrated tannins. See my earlier tasting notes.

4/21/8/4/4 +50 =91 pts.

A great value Southern Italian at around $20.

A bit modern but it handles it well and doesn’t overwhelm the character. — 18 days ago

Tenuta del Portale

Aglianico del Vulture 2012

This volcanic wine took a while to open up. The tar matches the inky black color. Chewy tannins carry the wine to a long finish. Fantastic wine from a severely under appreciated and under exporter region. — 16 days ago

Not as inky as other Aglianico we’ve had (that’s a good thing). Not a lot of acid, medium tannins, some ballpoint pen, smoke, charcoal, tobacco. black pepper, plum & stewed fruits. From Flatiron Wines, NY Times 2019 20 under $20 list. — 16 days ago
