Intense, jewel-like ruby in color, with perfume of violets, cool weather cherries, and other red fruit, this fine Aglianico features flavors of cherry, spice, herbs, and pipe tobacco. The velvety mouth-feel from mid-palate tannins creates a luxurious texture on which to savor this deep, elegant wine. It should pair well with pork or other dishes for which one would serve a cool-climate Syrah.

We drank our second bottle with friends on 2/28/10. It had a great bouquet of tobacco, potting soil, cedar, black cherry and spice. The palate was smooth, balanced and very dry with flavors that followed the nose. This bottle did seem more tannic than the previous one.
