Juicy, sweet fruited with softly spiced cherry, explosive red summer fruit and black fruit, soft yet ripe tannins, and a fresh earthy finish. Not heavy in colour or body. Crunchy, fresh, aromatic. This is the complete opposite of what you expect from an Aglianico from southern Italy. Gorgeously savoury.
