Press & Reviews

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate“Offering a transparent view onto this versatile red grape from Campania, the 2016 Aglianico is redolent of bright cherry and blackberry with spicy notes of tar and cured tobacco at the back. Those savory aromas are mild, and they appear to emerge from the grape itself. However, this wine does see barrel age, and of course that has contributed to the stability and the structure of the wine. Some 150,000 bottles were made.” Shelf Talker Full Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast“Aromas of dark berry and baking spice lead the nose. The simple palate delivers ripe blackberry, clove and a light peppery note alongside round tannins.” -Kerin O’Keefe Full Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate“The 2015 Irpinia Aglianico Corte di Giso is a nicely harmonious red wine that offers a generous array of dark-fruit aromas followed by dark spice and tobacco. The Aglianico grape is capable of offering plump ripeness and succulence in a warm and balanced vintage such as this. Some 30,000 bottles were made.” Shelf Talker Full Review
