The 2007 Titolo displays totally awesome potential, inky blue/purple, the explosive nose of raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruit complicated by violets, leather, tobacco, lava rock and tar, the palate is fully dense, with sumptuous flavours, powerful velvety tannins grip the mouth, but beneath the tannins lay an exceptional wine which is long, complex and deeply concentrated, and yet it never comes across as being heavy. This is a fresh, vibrant and powerful wine with decades of glorious life ahead of it.
"The 2007 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo is a ripe, seamless wine endowed with layers of espresso, dark fruit, sage, rosemary, spices, crushed rocks and French oak, all of which come together on a textured, sumptuous frame. This dense, full-bodied Aglianico impresses for its richness, impeccable overall balance and fabulous length. It should be even better in a few years' time. Once again, Elena Fucci has made a reference-point wine for Basilicata. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."

A very good wine at this price point. It definitely takes about 2 - 3 hours to open up and should do well as we cellar a few bottles for 2 or 3 more years. It is a good full flavored wine now if you allow it to decant for a few hours.
