Wow!  You can sense nice intense and sensational fruit with that first sip. You’ll praise this medium bodied wine and admire its good balance and structure.  There are some hints of tobacco with a floral note to the finish. Swish and swirl all you want, because you definitely want that full “mouth feel” experience in this moderate tannin Aglianico. This vintage has many, many good years left in it and should be even more delightful in the future.  Add this varietal to what does well in Texas.  Enjoy with your wine friends, as this one is something to talk about!
