Nice to spend some time on a Taurasi Aglianico, rather than just at a tasting. Mid-deep garnet, with quite a broad rim. Complex, savoury leather, grilled meat, black tea, chilli spice, tomato ragú notes, and baked red fruit beneath. Hint of rubbery volcanic aromas. Sweet, baked plum entry. Sulphurous, meaty, volcanic smoke notes. Powerful, quite rustic tannic structure. Vanilla cream notes to the pruney, baked fruit, and leather complexity at the finish. Quite crisp, refreshing acidity.
