Oh Aglianico...I caught the bug on my honeymoon in Praiano and haven't been able to shake it. When I want a big structured red I'm almost ALWAYS looking at this special grape from Campania. Deep dark red in color, almost black, but not inky somehow. Big nose of dark fruit, earth and mineral. Very clean with no hints Brettanomyces. The palate is very classy and very structured although the tannins are not grippy, but ultra fine and elegant. Earthy red fruit continue until a wonderful gravelly, mineral finish. I'm totally in love.

Wow! What a great example of clean, classic Aglianico, with fresh cherry, some deeper plummy fruit and peppery finish, plus the sharp mineral notes of obviously volcanic top soil. I inadvertently left a bottle open for a few days longer than usual and it was really singing by day 3 when the tannins had mellowed a bit without losing any brightness of fruit. A lively, substantial wine to pair with grilled meat and heavier cheesy dishes.

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.
