TERREDORA 2011 AGLIANICO

The Aglianico grape makes wines with a soul of fire—spicy and smoky with a
pronounced mark of mountain flintiness. Aglianico is the primary grape of Southern Italy’s most famous wine region, Taurasi from the slopes of Mount Vesuvius outside Naples. It is also the latest ripening grape variety in Italy and can sometimes show forbidding tannins. Terredora’s Taurasi are great wines with impressive stature and ageability, but this humbler Aglianico bottling shows warmth and accessibility in a way the “big wine” never will. The best analogy here might be the comparison between a Côtes du Rhône and a top Châteauneuf-du-Papes. Look for ripe cherries and raspberries complemented by dark spices and an edge of black pepper and sage.
