Aglianico del Vulture 100%
Lively and bright ruby-red. With light fruity and undergrowth notes and sophisticated floral hints. Persistent and sharp spicy hints, resin nuances, mineral notes and lightly smoky finish. Great woodiness that is never excessive. At the first sip, it is austere, full-bodied, structured and permeated with a certain aristocratic rigour. Also delicate, juicy and seductive. Pervasively fresh on the palate. Pleasantly pervasive and chewy tannins. Very enjoyable and persistent finish.
