A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: This is a great example of how Aglianico can be firm and robust as well as lively and crisp. This wine is loaded with characteristic dark fruit, sour cherry and firm tannins, but then there's that rush of zesty acidity that keeps this all lithe and ageable. It's intense and grippy, but also approachable and drinkable. What a wine at this price! Enjoy this with grilled sausages. (Vintages panel, June 2018) Price $ 14.95
