18pts/20 (93/100pts)
After directing two co-operatives in the area near Monte Vulture, Alovini owner and winemaker Oronzo Alò set up his own winery in 2003. This very soft and juicy red is a blend of Cabernet and Aglianco, and is packed full of pure red and black fruits with a velvety texture – a great wine to enjoy with food.
