Vital and tannic after a number of years, a testament to this grape’s aging ability. The bouquet deals strawberry, raspberry, mint and sage. In the mouth, hard tannins frame plum and cherry fruit, which is backed by a racy, no-holds-barred finish. Nothing out of place; well structured.
Starts off with a wonderfully fragrant nose, complex and bursting with floral, anise and cherry notes. Firmly structured on the palate, where it adds elements of plum, leather, tobacco and black pepper. Best with rare beef now, or hold three years and let the tannins mellow a bit.

In keeping with Vulture tradition, this compact wine puts less emphasis on oak shadings and concentrates on the purity of the fruit instead. There are leafy, bramble-like notes of forest floor, garden greens and exotic spice. The wine has bright berry accents and ends on a spicy, almost piquant note.
A playful hint of porcino mushroom and earth peeks though aromas of spice, bramble and green spinach leaf. This is a distinctive wine (in gorgeous packaging) that represents a traditional style of Aglianico del Vulture. It tastes raw, gritty and firm in the mouth.
The clean packaging of this Aglianico rosé from Basilicata is beautiful and so are the wine’s delicate aromas of pink grapefruit, raspberry and rose. This is a highly drinkable wine with rich fruit flavors and an easy, no-fuss approach.
This white wine from Basilicata delivers sweet fruit aromas of passion fruit, green melon, papaya and peach. But there are also drying mineral tones that give it a clean and polished feel.
