Lots of juicy berry and plum, with hints of spice and mineral. Full-bodied, with spicy fresh fruit on the palate, firm tannins and a clean, minerally finish. Nicely done. Give it a while. Best wine ever from here. Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2005.

The 2001 Bocca di Lupo is a wine which demonstrates that the Aglianico grown in the northwestern part of Puglia, just a short distance from the Basilicata, can compete with the best of Italyrsquo;s south. Smoky and balsamic on the nose with intense and expansive notes of raspberries and blackberries, cloves, mint, and high-roast coffee, its packed, strappingly muscular, and dense flavors continue in a seamless flow over the palate, softening as they move but still totally mouth-filling and explosively powerful. The only regret is that these wines are released too early and will probably be drunk too early as well mdash; this is a bottle which I would not touch until 2007, and it will still be going strong in 2020.
