This elegant Aglianico boasts a lovely bouquet of blue flower, blackberry, spice and a hint of saddle leather. The savory palate delivers ripe black cherry and blackberry layered with notes of black pepper and cinnamon. Solid tannins and fresh acidity give it balance, while smoky mineral signals the close.
