Intense and perfumed. Plum sauce, Darjeeling tea, sandalwood, candied violets. Tremendous tannin met by bracing acid. Truly lovely.

Rich and robust, with a dashing nose exploding with violets, tar and purple fruit. This is very barolo-esque, with plenty of size, but also a sublime mineral elegance, layered spicy finish, grippy but refined tannins and hardly noticeable wood influence. One of the better aglianicos I've had no doubt! 2011 vintage.

Fascinating Aglianico. Brambly, almost raisined fruit. White pepper. Bit of a cool climate Syrah thing going on. Rich, ripe, alcoholic, massively tannic, but all elements working in harmony.

Bright red fruit. Fairly straightforward on the palete. Tasty juice with some time ahead of it.

Holding up nicely, showing cedar, pencil shavings, blueberries, ripe cherries and more than a handful of volcanic minerality. Closing in on its peak drinking window, this great Aglianico will reward additional patience.
