  1. Love anglianico! Wish a producer would find the right location and plant a vineyard in the U.S. Under-appreciated and poor availability here.

  2. “This dark red offers concentrated black cherry reduction, cassis, pine, hot stone and dark tobacco notes. Well-integrated, delivering fresh acidity and fine tannins.”

  3. You’ll find rich fruit, a fleshy body plus good balance. Aromas remind of black cherries, licorice and a mineral tang of iron and ash (volcanic terroir, loud and clear). The mouth is saturated and pure, richly juicy with blackberry, licorice, stewed plums and black cherries. Aged in a mix of new and older French oak for less than 10 months. “…a relatively fleshy, open wine with attractive juiciness in its dark fruit. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Aglianico…Sweet floral notes linger on the finish.”—The Wine Advocate
