Bright ruby. Piercing aromas of sour red cherry, black currant, violet and lavender. Then dense, sweet and complex, offering very pure mineral, deep plum and smoky berry flavors that have an almost metallic, steely quality. A wine of remarkable balance and finesse, but also powerful and concentrated. Absolutely gorgeous wine confirming the 2013 vintage to be a great one for Aglianico del Vulture. (ID)
The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo offers a rich and savory interpretation. The wine reveals earthy notes of freshly tilled earth and button mushroom and it also shows autumnal layers of crushed leaf and black currant. Together, these various elements come together in smooth harmony. The fruit element at the back is a good guarantee of the wine's future aging potential. The finish offers solid tannins and earthy grittiness. Titolo does malolactic fermentation in oak and is aged in French barrique for 12 months. (ML)
Initially smoky and reduced on the nose, but air allows the sandalwood- and herb-laced flavors of raspberry preserves and green olive to come through. Fleshy in texture, but set over sleek tannins that firm the chewy finish. (AN)
Deep cherry red, intense black-cherry fruit on the nose - really generous and deep and just a hint of smoky reduction. Dry, chalky tannins. Deep and long and still needs time. 17/20 points (JH)
