Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger 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.

See my wine recommendations readily available at the LCBO here:

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
