Wine Spectator:

"A ripe, full-bodied red, sporting pure black cherry coulis, macerated blackberry, underbrush and tar notes framed by full tannins. A heady wine, boasting a long aftertaste of fruit and licorice. Drink now through 2018. 150 cases imported. -NW" (09/13)

Product Description:

Producer:
"Aglianico del Vulture is called vecchio after aging in barrique for three years and riserva after at least five. It is considered among the best vines produced in Italy and also carries the name Barolo of the South due to the similarities in its production process and taste."

"According to history, this variety was brought to Italy by the Greek and it was known as Hellenica. The Romans called it Hellenic and used it to improve the quality of the Falerno, a favorite wine of the poets of this time. During the 15th century under the Aragonians it was finally referred to as Aglianico."

"The Macarico cellar was dug right into the volcanic rock. It is 40 meters long (120 feet) and resembles the cave- cellars owned by locals hundreds of years ago. The cellar maintains a modest temperature fluctuation that ranges from 13 degrees to 16 degrees C."

"The relative good number of fermenters allows for good flexibility in harvesting and wine making. In other words at Macarico Estate is able to implement 5-6 vinifications at each harvest." - Importer
