Rosa d'Oro Aglianico 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Known as the Cabernet of Basilicata in Southern Italy, Aglianico bridges the gap between Old and New World wine with Lake County closely matching its home terroir. Savory red cherry and deep black fruit backed by dark spice, firm tannin and acid, with minerality and classic undertones of graphite, iron, mint, herb and earth. Rustic yet refined, totally varietally correct, and very food friendly with a robust meal that can match it. Potential aging 10+ years, improving all the while.

Initial attack of licorice on the nose which blew away after 30 minutes. inky and floral. this wine tastes like a flower garden full of violets with a tannic back end that paired great with an avocado cheeseburger.not much fruit here which is to be expected with aglianico. this is not a sipping wine. pair it with a hearty meat based meal and you won't be disappointed.
