Looking for something big and bold for these cooler months? This Aglianico from the heel of Italy’s boot might be the ticket. Aglianico is a grape that is built to last, creating wines that are full bodied and full of flavour and this 2019 from Casa Bardonecca is no exception. Its tight when first opened but give it time in a decanter or glass and it’ll reward you with lush notes of damson plum, bramble, rich mocha and a hint of tobacco and clove. At this price buy a case and crack a bottle open every so often, to see its evolution. Drink now and into the future.
Aglianico is a grape variety known for making dense contemplative wines. This wine is no exception. Juicy blackberries, black Doris plum, and cherry are accentuated by mocha, leather, and spice. The wine is full bodied with firm grippy tannins and a long finish.
It’s the kind of broad-shouldered red that benefits from having a bit of air. So, open it for a few minutes and give it a good swirl before enjoying!
