Tenuta del Portale Aglianico Aglianico del Vulture Riserva 2008

Member Review by EMark:

Strong nose of tart cherry and some mineral. Very pleasant on the palate. Again, a black cherry thing and, maybe, black pepper. As the wine moves around the palate, there is nice tartness that is almost, but not really, lemon. Very tame tannins. US$1439 at Total WIne

Rich nose of red and black currant, crushed stone and hints of leather. Nice strong tannins on the palate with hints of coffee over red currant and rich cassis.

I have tasted this wine myself as a wine agent in Spain, and I have found this wine to be of a very high quality & prestige. Its characteristics are 100% accurate, it's tannic, full body, velvety, smooth & fruity. This superb wine accompanies dishes like Roast dinners, (Red/White meat), Game and strong cheeses. I have had some public wine tastings and there is already a great interest. I strongly suggest you try it and you will never change it for another wine.

Excellent tanic structure for this price range. No off flavors whatsoever. Wines from Southern Italy (especially Basilicata) are off the radar and so are still very under-priced. Raisin notes. Delicious chalk sensation on the lips. A great entry-level introduction to the grape, the expression of which can be extremely diverse. What would it taste like in 4-5 years?

Dunkles Rot, mit granatroten Rändern. Intensives Aroma nach Beeren und Gewürzen. Kraftvoll und harmonisch am Gaumen. Feine Tannine mit eleganter Vanille Eichenholznote.
