Rivera 2013 Cappellaccio Riserva Aglianico (Castel del Monte)

#65 Enthusiast 100 2019
Return to List

Grown on the limestone hills of the Castel del Monte region, this is an elegant Aglianico that displays an intense nose of crushed pink peppercorn, dried violet, hibiscus and tobacco. The medium-bodied palate is driven by persistent acidity and a mineral vein that are tightly coiled around tart red berry, spice and earth flavors. There's a lot of intensity to this wine that needs to unravel, including its firm, grippy tannins. Drink from 2022. Alexander Peartree
