Winemaker Notes

Dark and intense ruby red with an ample and complex nose yielding ethereal spices, cherry, blackberry preserves, rosemary, tobacco and cinnamon with light hints of vanilla. Dry on the palate and full bodied with firm tannins and a long finish. Although a young wine when released, it is destined for a great future!

Critical Acclaim

V 94
The 2019 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo is stunning. It opens with a bit of an exotic flair, mixing smoky plum and lavender with animal musk, crushed ashen stone and a whiff of sour citrus that lights up the senses. Then it enters the palate silky and pliant, quickly gaining in youthful tannic tension, but not before providing a preview of mentholated herbal tones and depths of mineral-laden dark fruits that will take center stage after a few years of cellaring. This finishes incredibly long yet structured, leaving a staining of primary concentration to linger under an air of pretty inner florals and savory spice. I believe the 2019 may one day rank among the best vintages ever produced of Elena Fucci’s Titolo.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

This is the wine Fucci started with in 2004. She ages the wine for one year in new French oak barriques, where its dark plum and raspberry flavors develop notes of spice and tapenade. Its dense tannins and dried-fruit notes give a more earthbound and brooding impression than her amphora-aged aglianico, suited for braised meat or savory stews.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Once an unexpected sensation, Elena Fucci’s Titolo Aglianico has become a point of reference, as the 2019 vintage only further confirms. The notes of tar and roses notes that have lent this grape its nickname are immediately apparent on the nose, underpinned with dark berries and brambles. A wine that manages to feel both lithe and substantial and that could take another decade of age in stride.

JS 91
James Suckling

Game, pungent white pepper and blackberries to the nose. The full-bodied palate has lots of dense, sinewy tannins that will need time to soften. Juicy and really tight finish. Unfiltered. Amphora. Drink after 2025.

Perched above the famous Villa Rotondo, the Fucci property towers over the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture area in Basilicata. At 650 meters of altitude the soil is pure black volcanic lava, also locally known as 'pozzolana'. "Titolo" is the name of this Lava channel or "costone", which came down from the now extinct Vulture volcano. Nobody owns vineyards located higher than the Fucci's, no winery harvests later than the Fucci's, making these Aglianico grapes the last grapes harvested in all of Europe for dry red wine making!

Inhabiting the arch of Italy’s boot, this southern, mountainous region has a relatively small amount of vineyard area under vine. Basilicata has one DOCG for its prized red grape, Aglianico, Aglianico del Vulture Superior, which is limited to the slopes of an extinct volcano. The best whites are made of Malvasia bianca.

Making its home in the mountainous southern Italy, Aglianico is a bold red variety that is late to ripen and often spends until November on the vine. It thrives in Campania as the exclusive variety in the age-worthy red wine called Taurasi. Aglianico also has great success in the volcanic soils of Basilicata where it makes the robust, Aglianico del Vulture. Somm Secret—The name “Aglianico” bears striking resemblance to Ellenico, the Italian word for "Greek," but no evidence shows it has Greek ancestry. However, it first appeared in Italy around an ancient Greek colony located in present-day Avellino, Campania.
