A simply fantastic expression of Aglianico, this opens with alluring aromas of underbrush, ripe black-skinned fruit, leather, tilled earth and dark spice that carry over to the delicious full-bodied palate. Firm velvety tannins and fresh acidity balance the juicy fruit flavors. It's already extremely tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2020–2031.
