Tasting Note:

Smokey sweet aromas, flavours of cherry, mineral and coffee bean, less rich and lighter on its feet than previous vintages but not lacking strength either. Long intense and powerful, if polished, tannins. An Aglianico varietal wine from vineyards planted on clay and tuffa soils with south-east, south-west and north-west exposures at between 420 to 460 meters above sea level. After de-stemming and fermentation the wine is aged in used oak barriques of up to three years old for 18 months.
