Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Deep brick red in color, this richly spiced red is bursting with crushed black fruit character. In the mouth, it’s rich and full bodied with assertive tannins. Hints of mocha and eucalyptus add a savory dimension to this wine.  (Jul 2015)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Mocha, sweet brown bread and vanilla notes accent the flavors of creamed boysenberry, black licorice drop and herbed black olive in this juicy red, with plush tannins. A modern style, but the oak finds enough fleshy flavor for balance. Smoke and graphite hints linger on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made.-AN  (May 31 2015)

Wine maker notes
100% Aglianico del Vulture from 70 to 80 year old vines grown on volcanic soil rich in clay, calcium, nitrogen and tuff. Pre-fermentative maceration takes place at 41°F for 10 days and is followed by fermentation carried out using natural yeasts for 60 days at a maximum temperature of 79°F. The wine is put into new barriques for 24 months. Intense deep ruby with hints of chocolate with a persistent creamy and fruity finish. The result is a wine with a marked personality with silky, highly persistent tannins.

Basilicata is one of Italy’s most ancient regions: colonized by the Greeks around the 7th century B.C., its noble red grape of Aglianico was first planted here at that time. In fact, the name comes from Hellenico, “Greek”. Rich in untouched natural scenery, ancient folklore and myths; principally hilly and mountainous and wedged between two seas of the Mediterranean basin, it is one of the country’s least populated areas and enjoys a mostly continental climate. Vulture is part of a large area that extends to the north of the Basilicata region, dominated by the austere profile of the Monte Vulture, a non-active volcano. For centuries the volcanoes were thought of as a source of destruction and death, today farmers are compensated for the damage caused by the eruptions of the past centuries by being able to grow vines on the cooled lava which contains an incomparable wealth of minerals, which create the grapes complexity. To get the best wines, however, require not just great terroir, but it is important to have the grapes that best fit to these lands. Varieties such as Aglianico and Greco have been shown to be able to adapt to these beautifully unspoiled areas, producing wines of great complexity and depth.
