Cantina di Venosa 1997 Carato Venusio (Aglianico del Vulture)

Editors' Choice

For an older wine, this is fresh, lively and isn't even close to folding. In fact, it's coming along perfectly and still requires either sturdy food or another few years on its side. That said, it features a pristine black-fruit nose, delicious berry fruit, and a hard, starching finish with dynamite tannins. It's a touch like nails at the very back end, but like we said, with food it'll be great. Michael Schachner
