Product Overview

94 Points - Vinous
"Deep red. Pungent saline and flinty nuances complement blueberry and red cherry aromas. Then noteworthy mineral edge adds punch to the wine's concentrated red fruit and floral flavors. Still very youthful, the middle palate is somewhat under wraps today, but this expands very nicely on the back half, finishing with ripe tannins and seductive lingering sweetness. Made from 60-80 year old vines grown at 580 meters above sea level, the wine is aged 18-24 months in a mix of French and Slavonian oak barrels." -AG

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Sourced from the San Martino cru in the village of Maschito, this is a polished, elegant Aglianico from vines over sixty years old. Aromas of brandy-dipped cherry, rooibos, vanilla and violet perfume the nose and extend to the juicy yet taut palate. There's plushness to the tannins that makes this accessible in the near term, but it should hold well through 2030." -AP
