The emphasis here is the purity of territory-driven aromas: You'll get distinct volcanic notes of granite, campfire, pencil lead and minerals. There's little fruit here, but the tannins are very firm and dusty. This 50-50 Aglianico and Piedirosso blend has highly recognizable qualities that identify its southern Italian origins.

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.
