Case of 12 bottles
Varietals: 100% Aglianico (organic)
Vinification/Ageing: Aged in new barriques 18 months, bottle 18 months
Description: Full deep ruby color. Inky black cherry, dark plum, licorice and bitter chocolate on the pungent, aromatic nose, plus notes of camphor and tar. Dense yet juicy on the palate, offering very good intensity and increasing vibrancy to its dark fruit, mineral and tar flavors. Finishes broad and long, with very smooth tannins and a sense of gracefulness that usually eludes red wines clocking in at 14%+ alcohol. Always a great wine, this vintage is right up with the best versions ever.
Pairings: Aged cheeses, lamb, pork, buffalo, filet, game
