Donnachiara Irpinia Aglianico 2017
A smoky note up front underscores the baked cherry and dried fig fruit on the palate of this medium- to full-bodied red. Accents of cured tobacco and spice linger on the finish, firmed by well-knit tannins. Drink now through 2024.
Inky ruby. Coffee and red and black plum on the nose and in the mouth. Pure and clean at first, but then mountingly astringent, though it echoes long on the aftertaste with welcome, lively floral notes.
Here's a straightforward and easygoing wine with lots of bright fruit and wild cherry. The 2017 Aglianico is a simple and cheerful red to quaff with pizza or spaghetti with grandma's secret sauce. This wine delivers pure red and purple fruit, sweet and simple. It ages in barrique for a quick three months.
