More Wine Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2009 D'angelo Aglianico Del Vulture is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with appealing aromas of vanilla, anise, pomegranate on the nose and strawberry and vanilla on the palate. It is tannic (decant for 30-60 min) and has a medium to long finish. This wine will benefit from cellaring - drink 2014-2022, it is food friendly (salty meaty foods) and a sipper (for tannin lovers). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts - recommended buy just to try what the Aglianico grape has to offer. Tasted Oct/12.

Gambero Rosso 2012 gave this a rating of 2 Glasses out of 3 which denotes “Very Good to Excellent”. Classy Aglianico with aromas of smoked meat, fig, blueberry, cherry and clove. Dry, dense and concentrated with lots of tannin and an equal measure of fruit on the palate. Simultaneously rich and elegant. Long, fruity/spicy finish. Best with 3-5 years in a cellar, and then will drink well for a decade or more. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
