Aglianico can be a diverse grape, but the ones made in Vulture (the arch of the boot), tend to be excellent values. Purple in color with a ruby rim, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with plums, black cherries, cocoa powder, and spice. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Good acidity. On the palate, this is young but drinking well. Plenty of black cherries and plums with some underlying char. Good finish. Very nice on its own, this will go well with the right foods. Think bigger meat or fowl dishes and it can handle some spice. Drink over the next eight to twelve years. Plenty of upside to ageing a bit.
