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.

Located in the hearth of the production area of the Aglianico del Vulture, founded in 1990 by the D’Angelo family. Aged for 24 months in oak, aromas of berry fruits and perfume scents. On the palate flavors of dark berry, pepper and earthy spice. Medium+ finish ending with a mineral character and earthy tones.

Una potenza da Potenza. Intense tannin, cherry brûlée, and very earthy.
