Holy aromatic bat man, immediately floral and brooding depth of spices and crimson and black fruit. A sweet coconut and vanilla bean oak spice that falls away as the wine opens up over time. True to Aglianico dry sappy tannins and high acidity with a touch of bitterness reminiscent of Fernet, the wine carries the boldness of its fruit but finishes with that structure we love of Italian wines. Amarone drinkers would enjoy the generosity of flavour. A beast. Black garlic anything or scorched BBQ meats, peking duck or beef wellington would be fitting here.
