Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A big step up compared to the 2011 vintage, the 2013 Irpinia Aglianico is an oak-driven expression that bursts open in the glass with tones of cinnamon, vanilla bean and espresso. Those spicy notes are followed by sweet fruit, blackberry preserves and cherry liqueur. This is an extracted and opulent expression of one of the boldest indigenous grapes in the Italian portfolio. Sweet cedar wood and dark fruit drive a long finish. "

Product Description:

"Aglianico from Campania is sometimes called 'the Barolo of the South', not because it tastes like Barolo but because it is ageworthy and regal like Barolo. Brought to the region by the Greeks as far back as 800 BC: the name comes from the Greek Ellenico.

"Aglianico is deep, intense ruby purple in color. This hearty red wine has rich aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrants and blackberries along with spicy notes of cocoa and smoke. The tannins are ripe, soft and make for a long, full-bodied texture yet balanced by good acidity which gives it a true sense of finesse. This robust red is a perfect match with grilled or braised red meat, osso buco, hearty legume-based soups and medium-aged herbed cheeses." - Importer
