Wow- 99 points form one critic, I just had to try it! Then I realized the pro in question rates on a different scale. It looks pretty dark in the glass, but there’s an effervescence appearing on the top that concerns me- either a tainted glass or something in the wine. On the nose I’m getting currants, cherry and bramble. The palate is quite sweet, with layered blackberry jam/blackcurrant reduction. This wine is very thick and juicy, loaded with fruit extract. There’s a nice dose of tannins that gently appear on the midpalate, melding with the dark fruits and carrying the wine to a nice, balanced finish of black berries, black currants and black tea leaf. There’s a Ribena note right at the end that I’m enjoying. This is a solid 91 pointer that will drink nicely till 2024. I’m going 4 stars at $30 for this Aglianico. Salut….
