2005 Bisceglia Aglianico de Vulture Gudarrà

SKU #1054196

94 points Wine and Spirits: "At first this feels hidden behind both its oak and the strong mineral tannins pulled from the calcareous-clay soils of Monte Vulture. It fills out with air, balancing violet and ripe cherry flavors with a dried mushroom earthiness and piercing acidity. Impressively structured and built to age, this could be cellared for up to a decade or decanted for roast leg of lamb." 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate's 2005 Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra is made from the oldest vines on the property, although this is a very young winery, so vine age must be considered in relative terms. The Gudarra is a sumptuous, super-ripe Aglianico that boasts an expansive, creamy-textured core of jammy blueberries, spices, minerals and new French oak. Still remarkably youthful, this exuberant wine will only get better in bottle although it is pretty irresistible today. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015." (04/09) Three glasses from Gambero Rosso.

Italy

- 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.
