Big Aglianico. High alcohol, tannin and yes, acid. Surprisingly balanced. Plum, leather, bay leaf, cocoa. Expensive. $50.

Intense fruit and floral aromas with something a little briney. Dense tannin and bright acid.

Surprisingly approachable Taurasi. Well-integrated tannins and oak. Tobacco, leather, sour cherry. Bold, concentrated, and at the same time sharp and focused.
