87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2013
(100% aglianico; 6.2 g/l total acidity; 3.57 pH; 29.8 g/l dry extract; 12.95% alcohol): Medium red with an amber rim. Musky, reduced aromas of rust, game, espresso and tobacco complicate red cherry and redcurrant on the nose. Then surprisingly supple and sweet in the mouth, offering moderate concentration and decent energy to the red fruit and underbrush flavors. Finishes with modest persistence, a hint of caramel oak and limited complexity. Disappointing.
