Gudarrà is deep ruby-red in color with enticing notes of red cherries, cassis, blackberries, sweet spice and a hint of licorice. This is an accessible, versatile red that pairs beautifully with southern Italian Pasta dishes, lamb, grilled or roasted game and ripe, flavorful cheeses.
"What a finish on this. This sneaks up on you with lots of spice, meat, and berry character. Decadent and juicy with so much rich fruit. What a great flavorful finish."
"The 2006 Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra is firm, tannic and impressively youthful. Dark fruit, menthol, licorice and new leather are some of the nuances that emerge from this virile, powerful Aglianico. Roasted coffee beans, licorice and grilled herbs add further layers of complexity. Everything comes together beautifully here; all this wine needs is time in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021."

"A smoky, rustic red, offering layers of spicy blackberry and plum skin fruit that unfold to reveal nuances of wild herb, mesquite and game. Complex and long, with an aftertaste of espresso bean. Drink now through 2018. 1,000 cases made."
