2009 De Conciliis "Donnaluna" Aglianico Paestum

SKU #1077091

Deep ruby in color with a bright and broad nose, this wine shows aromas of ripe strawberry, cassis, cocoa, violets, on a mineral base with a typical Aglianico "textured" tannin structure framing a medium-bodied wine delivering prominent flavors of black cherry and cracked black pepper. The wine finishes warm, the tannins are now more noticeable and they add to the pleasant experience.

Bruno De Conciliis nails it again! The 2009 Aglianico is a stunner. Tons of almost sappy black and red fruit on the nose, with lifted spice and black pepper. While certainly in a more modern leaning style, this is still very much true to it's more rustic Aglianico roots, with substantial but polished tannins and a beautiful tension on the mid palate. The tiniest touch of oak and a pretty black licorice note on the finish round out this exceptionally lovely wine. Bruno De Conciliis, the man, is a trip. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him earlier this year. And his winery is quickly becoming a favorite of mine of the new guard in Campania. CM

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.
