Tim’s Tasting Notes

89

2009 Taste the Difference Aglianico del Vulture, Basilicata

£9.99 down to £7.49, 14%, Sainsbury's

Aglianico is arguably southern Italy's outstanding red grape (Nerello Mascalese and Nero d'Avola are the other contenders) and it makes some of its best wines on the volcanic slopes of the Vulture DOC. This is a rich and robust wine, with firmish tannins offset by plenty of spicy, peppery black fruits and minerally, refreshing acidity.
