5 of 5 Delightful June 23, 2017
Reviewer: Jack Wilshere from Oakland, CA United States  
I found a thirteen years old bottle of  Aglianico del Vulture (I'm estatic), aged enough to have mellowed out to near perfection in a bottle. Full body wine that still shows beautiful and persistent fruit flavors, robust yet mellow tannins, hints of spices and herbs and a mouth filling delightful finish.
