Tormaresca Antinori Bocca di Lupo Aglianco/Cabernet Sauvignon Castel del Monte Apulia 2003
Wine Advocate #154 (Aug 2004) 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 Italy'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; this is a bottle which I would not touch until 2007, and it will still be going strong in 2020.

I recently had a 2004 from this producer. Absolutely yummy--- dense and releasing many layers of fruit and some chocolate in the mouth. Finishes wonderful soft and rounded . A total hit with everyone at the table.
full body, deep purple color, strong fruity smell. taste as Merlot grapes. Not long lasting one. Should drink in 2 hours. Good table wine
