($113) Deep ruby-red. The pungent, wild nose offers myriad scents, including leather, tobacco, black pepper, nutmeg, blueberry, coffee liqueur and black truffle. Strongly mineral on the palate (the vineyards are not far from the extinct Roccamonfina volcano), where tobacco and leather come through again (due in part to the small percentage of piedirosso in this mainly aglianico blend), along with wonderfully pure red cherry, blackberry liqueur, cedar, flint and black truffle. This cult wine is hard to find in Italy The first vintage, 1994, is drinking beautifully today. (Winebow, Inc., Hohokus NJ
