Elena Fucci 2018 Sceg (Aglianico del Vulture)

This new bottling by Elena Fucci utilizes grapes from a neighboring vineyard of vines over seventy years old that were at risk of going untended. The name Sceg, means pomegranate in Arbëreshë, which is a dialect spoken by Albanians who emigrated to southern Italy centuries ago. Bright aromas of violet, pressed cherries and dried hibiscus are fresh on the nose of the wine. It's rounded and juicy on the palate, yet featherlight in feel. There's a nice balance between the bursting berry fruit and supple tannins, with cherry skins and a light violet tone lingering on the close. It's approachable in its youth and should be enjoyed in the near term. Alexander Peartree
