- Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Gelso Rosso 2011 Product #29643 (In Stock)
Aglianico is southern Italy's great red grape, but you can make a fun, festive, fine value wine from it, too! Basilicata Aglianico is a bit riper and softer than in Campagnia, and Tenuta I Gelsi captures a remarkable amount of fresh fruit and juicy texture in this all tank, young vines, red. Cherry and blackberry fruit are framed by notes of leather, mineral, licorice and bitter chocolate. Fresh and juicy with grippy (but ripe) tannins, the plummy fruit and structure suggest a lighter version of California's Petite Sirah. A fine cookout or salami (or even pizza) red
- Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Aglianico L' Emozione 2007 Product #29644 (In Stock)
A late-released powerhouse Aglianico that shows the ripe fruit typical of Basilicata with plenty of earthy, black olive, complexity and depth.
"Spicy blackberry, raspberry, mint, tobacco, leather and a whiff of blue flower unfold in the glass. The succulent palate doles out crushed black cherry, espresso, mocha, black plum and savory herb alongside bracing tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points
