External Reviews for Rubrato Aglianico
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.
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 Aglianico 2008 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ The 2008 Aglianico Rubrato is a beautiful wine and a terrific value as well. Ripe dark fruit, smoke, ash, earthiness and subtle notes of gaminess emerge from this mid-weight red...the Rubrato a red that is best served with food rather than on its own... The Rubrato is a great introduction to Aglianico... 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 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 2006 / Soft vanilla-like nuances lavished over black fruit, plum cake, spice and cola. The wine is dense and thick with toasted notes and fresh blackberry flavors.
/ Blueberry, blackberry and cherry candy are backed by deep and penetrating notes of ash, pencil lead, mineral and licorice. The wine delivers vigor and personality and is a fine example of a Campania red with a solid structure and lasting finish.
/ Rubrato is a distinctive Aglianico with deeply etched mineral tones backed by hard cherry candy, leather, espresso, and cola. Gaglioppo never has heavy concentration or color but does do a nice job of cleaning the palate and makes a good companion to pasta with smoked bacon and pecorino.
