Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CANTINA SAN PAOLO
A THIRD REPEAT of the 2017 (**/**+) was released on January 25, 2020 at $14.95. Unable to get a bottle for assessment from the agent. Here is my previous note: Fairly deep intense purple colour. Attractive, complex, intense, sandalwood-cedar nose with lots of ripe plum notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, fairly intense, quite well structured, harmonious, ripe plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, sandalwood-tinged finish. Has 13.5% alcohol and now 2 g/L residual sugar.

TASTING NOTE: Wow! Now here's great value! The aglianico grape is considered to be the nebbiolo of southern Italy - firm, gutsy, complex. This captures so much of this character for only $15. Great structure and depth but in that dry, grippy Euro style that you need to embrace up front. Expect lifted currants, thyme, pepper, old spicy wood and earthiness. It is medium weight, warming, drying and thoroughly engaging. The length is excellent. Score - 91 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Feb. 20, 2019) Price $ 14.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
