Dark red purple: color to the rim and near black core. Inviting nose of blueberry cobbler in a new wooden bowl. Firm tannins lead the full-bodied palate which echoes the nose adding a dark graphite-like mineral note and a bit of tarry bitterness. Medium plus acidity balances it all to yield an excellent, rustic wine for heartier fare, especially Mediterranean. Drink now through 2028. — 25 days ago

Basilicata is a mountainous region in southern Italy, where you’ll find the majestic Mount Vulture, an inactive volcano, which is home to some of Basilicata’s best-known wines made from the Aglianico variety, a dark, thick-skinned variety.
Yet here we have a luscious white wine made with 50% Greco and 50% Fiano varieties offering a concentrated intensity of floral, white blossom, guava, passion fruit, melon, and mango aromas and flavors that will knock your socks off.
This wine is refreshing and easy-drinking. It would be an excellent solo sipper or complementary pairing with a variety of seafood dishes.
Vigneti del Vulture was founded in 2009 with an aim of producing wines from indigenous varieties, made in an internationally-appealing and accessible style. This lovely wine hits the mark.
