- d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014 Product #31777 (In Stock)
A juicy, fresh, and surprisingly easy-drinkinng Aglianico! As Wine Advocate says, the use of wood here is artful, softening tannins without adding any oak flavor. Delicious stuff to enjoy with sausages, roasted peppers, or any hearty food.
"D'Angelo has managed to tame the rough and rustic nature of Aglianico from Basilicata. The use of oak seems to be the key to their success. The 2014 Sacravite, which sees five months in large oak cask, is a prime example. The tannins and the forceful nature of the bouquet have been very nicely managed here. Soft layers of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and tar are presented with noticeable intensity. The wine offers a satisfying burst of earthiness and savory spice at the back. This vintage is a little weaker, but the wine delivers above-average results nonetheless. Sacravite is a great value buy."Wine Advocate 89 points
- d'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture 2013 Product #31684 (In Stock)
A textbook example of Aglianico anchored in tradition but with enough modernity to avoid palate-shredding toughness. 18 months in large, neutral, wood preserves the dark red cherry and wild berry fruit while giving just a hint of fresh leather, herb and earthy tar. As always with Aglianico, there's plenty of acidity and tannin, but both are well integrated and the tannins are powdery and supple. A great match for sausages or lamb with olives or roasted peppers!
