External Reviews for Rubrato Aglianico
Rubrato Aglianico 2011 - 88 points , Wine Enthusiast/ Rubrato is a midlevel Aglianico that offers an easy, approachable interpretation of one of Italy’s most powerful grape varieties. This shows pretty accents of spice and dark fruit.
Rubrato Aglianico 2010 - 88 points , Wine Enthusiast/ This is nicely balanced and easy in terms of its tannins and overall intensity, with enough structure to pair with game meat or succulent red meat. The bouquet is redolent of spice, black fruit and crushed granite.
Rubrato 2006 - 89 Points, Wine Review Online/ This is a very tasty, broadly useful rendition of Aglianico, which is almost certainly the finest red variety of southern Italy. Medium-bodied, the wine shows bright blackberry and black raspberry fruit that is amply supplied with fresh acidity. The tannins are very fine in grain, and there are interesting nuances of carpaccio and leather in the wine’s aromas. Pair with lighter pastas with tomato-based sauces or with white meats.
Rubrato Aglianico 2013 - 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast / Fresh and juicy, this opens with alluring aromas of ripe plum, violet, sunbaked soil and dark spice. The bright, silky palate offers crushed blackberry, succulent cherry, clove and star anise alongside supple tannins. Enjoy through 2018.
Rubrato Aglianico 2007 - 90 Points, eRobertParker.com/ ...It is a big, beefy Aglianico loaded with game, earthiness, espresso, grilled herbs, licorice and dark fruit. The tannins lack a measure of polish, which gives the wine a slightly rustic personality but the round long finish compensates to a large degree... best enjoyed at the dinner table. It is a steal for the money. Feudi gave the Aglianico del Vulture 18 months in French oak, all of which the wine has absorbed gracefully...proprietor Antonio Capaldo... boasts an impressive resume, replete with world-class academic credentials and stints with Lazard in Paris and McKinsey in Italy. Despite his background, Capaldo remains humble, eager to learn... all qualities which should serve him very well going forward. Noted agronomist Pierpaolo Sirch oversees the work in the vineyards and cellar.
Rubrato Aglianico - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ This is a pretty, soft-textured red that flows from the glass with layers of dark fruit, smoke, tar, and sweet toasted oak.
Rubrato 2006 - 3 Stars, Guide to Italian Wines/ Light purple with aromas of black cherry, plum and licorice. Medium-full with very good concentration. Ripe fruit and ample oak. Good acidity and refined tannins. Earthy finish with notes of tar. Nice varietal character.
