AGLIANICO DEL TABURNO
Denominazione di Origine Protetta
Ruby with intrusive garnet reflections. The olfactory thrust is immediate: blackberries, raspberries and licorice root in the foreground; it grows in complexity, leaving hints of vanilla, black pepper and cocoa to emerge. Thick palate, with softness, tannins tamed and invigorating freshness. It closes long, with a trail that is sapid enough and with almond tones. Fermentation in oak vats. It ages in barrique for 9 months and ages in bottle for 2 years. Cotechino and tracchie with Neapolitan ragout.
Crushed black peppers and cloves with blue fruits on the nose. Still very fresh. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Linear and focused. Drink now.
Dark garnet. First nose of peony, cherry and blueberries; then open on sweet spices. Ambitious mouth for quantities of extracts, divided between great freshness and still poisonous tannins. Full length vanilla. It ferments in 30 hectoliters vats, stops in steel and in barriques for 6 months and rests for 2 years in bottle. Grilled pork ribs with bacon.
