Bisceglia, Gudarra, Aglianico del Vulture 2012
Planted on volcanic soils on the slopes of the extinct Mount Vulture, the grapes produce raisined, dark fruit of great concentration. Aromas of eucalyptus and liquorice promise much, leading into a dense, complex palate of dates, stewed red fruits and violets. One year in French oak has added some licks of spice. Very moreish indeed.
