Aglianico del Vulture Titolo 2015 (Magnum)Elena Fucci
€ 78,65 (in Vat)
Here's another great vintage from Elena Fucci, the ascending star of a rising wine region in the deep south of Italy. The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo shows a dark garnet color and robust appearance. Very characteristic of this extreme territory, this is a dark and penetrating wine with etched mineral notes behind blackberry, plum and savory spice. This vintage presents an even darker quality of fruit. In the mouth, you get iron, blood and dark mineral nuances that are absolutely typical of these darkened volcanic soils. This wine needs more time to integrate in the bottle before you pop the cork.

A firm, angular red, this leads with a light spritz that later dissipates and offers a snappy, herbed profile of cherry and cranberry fruit, woodsy spice and orange zest.
