Juicy, sweet-fruited with softly spiced cherry, explosive red summer fruit and black fruit, soft yet ripe tannins, and a fresh earthy finish. Not heavy in colour or body. Crunchy, fresh, aromatic. The way we prefer our Aglianicos and its clones. This is the complete opposite of what you expect from an Aglianico from southern Italy. Impressively and unremorselessly SAVOURY.
THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF TARDIS, BABY!
