Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra 2015
Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra 2015 is deep ruby-red in color with violet hues and enticing notes of red cherries, cassis, blackberries, and sweet spice. On the palate, balanced tannins and integrated alcohol make for an elegantly smooth wine that is truly “”to be enjoyed.”
The Bisceglia estate is situated on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano, Mount Vulture, in the historic district of Lavello. Gudarrà, in local dialect, means “to be enjoyed.” The name of the wine is a tribute to its concentrated flavors, which begs the drinker to enjoy another glass.
``You get terrific value with this red wine from Southern Italy. The fruit in this warm vintage comes together with precision and balanced intensity. The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Gudarrà is a generous and opulent expression with a thick layer of black fruit. In addition, you get delicate and territorial notes of campfire ash and exotic spice. This is a contemporary expression from a deeply traditional wine region. On the finish, you get touches of black olive and grilled herb.``Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points
