91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008

($37) Opaque inky red. Superripe red cherry, plum jam and strawberry on the nose, with suggestions of smoked meat and raspberry liqueur and a faint raisin note. Broad, fleshy and sweet, with an impressive array of red and dark berry preserve flavors, intriguing minerality and very soft tannins. Finishes very long and surprisingly energetic for such a rich, concentrated and even liqueur-like wine, which will remind many of a soft Amarone. Not for those who demand finesse but fans of sweet (about ten grams per liter of residual sugar), superripe reds should give this a shot. Made from grapes harvested at the end of November and beginning of December, this represents owner Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti's attempt to recreate an Aglianico del Vulture that harkens back to the somewhat sweet style made at the beginning of the 20th century.
