Grifalco Aglianico, "Gricos", 2012

12.00

Aglianico is the best known 'big red' grape in southern Italy, and there are two places where it grows particularly well, Taurasi in Campania and Monte Vulture in Basilicata. One of the challenges in making Aglianico del Vulture is making sure that these big reds don't become bitter, and Fabrizio Piccin has done an excellent job of taming the tannins without making the wines glossy or 'International.' Vulture is indisputably one of the best appellations in southern Italy. 100% Aglianico estate-grown in four different vineyards in the Vulture area (vine age: 15 yrs). Vinified in a forward, drinkable style but still an ample, very flavorful red wine with a deep plummy color. Aged in large barrels for 12 months. Strikingly savory flavors of leather, white pepper, black fruits and cured meat.
