TEODOSIO AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE 2011

Italy — Basilicata • $24.95 • 89/100

This wine is 100% Aglianico, grown on volcanic soils in the Vulture region of Basilicata, and was aged 10-12 months in second and third-fill barrels. The wine is deep red, with aromas of plum, blackberry and black cherry. Tannins are firm and chewy, and alcohol is obvious. The fruit is very ripe on the palate, with a dusty, earthy underpinning. This needs food for early consumption, but several more years in cellar will soften the tannins. I like the structure and potential. • Tasted 2017-03-04 • LCBO id#473173 • Find it at your nearest LCBOSTEM WINE GROUP (Agent)
