We are now in Matera... A special year for a special city. Besides being the European capital of culture 2019, it's the site of the opening scene of the new Bond movie. D.Craig picked the same spot for his accommodations. Anyways, I was ready for Aglianico....
With artisan pizzas all around, this 2010 paired wonderfully.
A big wine at 14.5 ABV, color is only starting to turn the rim, otherwise a deep dark ruby.
Earthy, black licorice, dusty, black olives on the nose, continuing to the palate. Tannins at are very firm and grippy. This thing could be cellared for several more years. I loved this wine.

Very interesting blend of Aglianico del Vulture with Malvasia, Moscato and Chardonnay. A must try for the price. Enjoy on its own or with any light fish. — 5 years ago
