  • Score: 91 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media The 2017 Aglianico del Vulture Teodosio makes for a great introduction to the Basilisco style, blossoming slowly in the glass to a rich, dark and earthy display of musky plums and wild herbs and a lifting hint of white smoke. It’s silky upon entry, but it quickly gains youthful tension through a mix of tart black fruits, minerals and slow-mounting tannins that collect toward the close. Hints of licorice and currants linger through the long yet structured finale. If enjoying the 2017 today, plan to give it an hour or more of air, as it gains in both body and depth the longer it’s open. The Teodosio comes from a blend of the Basilisco vineyards, but primarily from vines planted in basalt soils of ash, sandstone and clay. It refines for one year in neutral oak barrels.

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast An aroma of brandy-soaked blueberries mixes with violet and truffle on the rich nose. It's rather full in feel on the palate, with polished, rounded tannins propping up rich dark-fruit flavors. Pulsing acidity and a stony core add to the energetic vibe, making this a wine to enjoy with some age on it. Drink from 2022–2030. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
