Grifalco 2017 Damaschito (Aglianico del Vulture Superiore)

Cru Aglianico continues to be a screaming deal, and the Grifalco Damaschito remains an exemplar. Deep garnet (with violet hues) in the glass, the nose on this wine is subtle at first, giving milk chocolate and cigar box before dark cherries, plums and blackberries appear. Dark chocolate, vanilla bean and mixed berries jump out on the palate, but leave behind unctuous savory notes, like tiny pieces of charred meat leftover on the serving platter. This is a bottle that will last another decade easily, assuming someone's eye doesn't drift its way in the cellar before then. Danielle Callegari
