From the Critics:
- "The 2006 Aglianico del Vulture Macarico is an imposing, brooding red bursting with the essence of dark fruit, licorice, smoke, minerals, violets and tar. This powerful, tannic Aglianico exudes tons of class and sheer personality. Ideally it is best left alone for another year or two, but it is impressive, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021." -
- "Bright full ruby. Oak-driven scents of vanilla, clove and black pepper join blackberry, coffee, mint and herbs. Offers brooding blackberry and blueberry flavors but currently lacks the mid-palate flesh to support its firm tannic spine. Finishes austere and a bit dry, though there's fruit lurking in the background. A large-scaled and impressive wine that needs time, but I wonder if these tannins will ever resolve fully." (04/11) -
- "Here's an elegant and powerful wine from the deep south of Italy that cries out for a pairing with succulent steak or an aged cheese such as pecorino. Despite its blunt power and firm tannins, the wine delivers pretty complexity in the form of black currant, prune, slate and tobacco aromas. - ML" (07/11) -
