Not just a great holiday party wine, this makes a great “house” wine. In fact, it has become my “steak night” wine. It has rich, dark fruit along with a background of spice on the nose and palate. Aglianico’s typical tannins are there, but the rich fruit keeps them in check.

I really like this wine, Aglianico that is balanced, expressive, full of fruit but in a more supple and drinkable body! There's certainly a tannic backbone but it's layered into the wine's expression of fruit and terroir. We've sold a ton of the Biscegila Gudarra' in the last couple of vintages (the Big Brother to the Terra di Vulcano)and if you liked that wine you'll love this wine for its immediate drink-ability while still giving you your money's worth at an unbelievable price. Grilled meats, pasta or your Thursday night Burger this wine is going to excite you!
Drink from 2011 to 2015

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
