Aglianico Wine Review
Aglianico is an essential wine, creating some of the most expressive, complicated, and massive wines one can experience. I have reviewed the Serpico’s little brother the [link id=”82816″ text=”Rubrato “]recently, and for anyone looking for great value and an introduction to this bewitching grape, they should look there. I have also reviewed wines from Feudi di San Gregorio on several occasions previously: [link id=”9811″ text=”here”], and [link id=”3117″ text=”here. “]. In Campania, this winery consistently delivers high quality at a very good price point. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that combination.
Aromas of crushed violets, cherry and licorice give way to burnt cedar and mineral. Medium bodied with soft but impressive tannins, the wine has great density and structure. The palate offers dark fruit, wet stone, and cocoa that moves deeply into mineral until it veers toward fresh sage and dried fruit. 100% Aglianico sourced from the Taurasi district of Campania
Wine Rating: 94 Points
An exemplary bottle of Aglianico from Campania.
