Apollonio 1997 Red (Copertino)
One of the most satisfying wines I have had in a long time. A blend of Negro-amaro (80%) and four other red grapes crafted by the brothers Apollonio in southern Italy. Deep red with aromas of ripe black cherries, nutmeg and leather. An extraordinary wine that could probably sell in the $25 range.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
