Deep ruby red in color, with an intense bouquet of wild cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anise. It is full-bodied and well-balanced with flavors of plum, black cherry and licorice.
Enjoy with red meats, duck and hearty vegetarian dishes.
"A rich and spicy red with blueberry and chocolate character. Lots of grilled meat undertones. Full body, round and chewy tannins and flavorful finish. Slightly nutty undertones. Drink or hold."
"Dark and opulent, this has a modern touch, with soft oak tones that support pretty notes of black cherry, dark chocolate, spice and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich, toasted and delicious, with a long, dry finish."
"A ripe, full-bodied red, with layers of forest floor and ash to the sun-dried blackberry and plum skin fruit character. Full tannins frame the long finish of olive paste and spice. Best from 2014 through 2020."

If you enjoy Aglianico, you may appreciate Taurasi which takes this grape to a level. Big, smokey. Like a good Cuban cigar. Not to my wife's taste, but I like it alot
