  • Score: 88 Vintage 2020 Wine Advocate This is a soft expression of Campania's mighty red grape with easy-drinking appeal. To pair on take-out pizza night, the Terredora di Paolo 2020 Aglianico (with 90,000 bottles made) shows dark cherry, boysenberry and scorched earth. Only made in stainless steel, this is a fresh and rather naked expression of the grape. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator A fresh red, with a pure beam of ripe raspberry flavors layered with herbes de Provence and citrus peel accents. A base note of smoky mineral emerges on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2025. 4,000 cases made, 1,120 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media Violets mix with rose and lavender before giving way to tart cherries as the remarkably pretty 2019 Aglianico blossoms in the glass. It’s soft in feel with a pure and lifted display of black fruits and minerals. This finishes clean and fresh, with just a gentle tug of tannin that frames the expression nicely. The 2019 will perform best at the dinner table, where its floral bouquet and vibrant acidity will shine the brightest. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media Musky blackberries, plums, licorice and hints of leather lift up from the 2018 Aglianico. The textures are silky, giving way to a pure display of vibrant black fruits and savory spices, all nicely contrasted by a hint of sour citrus. There’s admirable length and grip to the finish, as violet florals and a nuance of tangerine linger. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 James Suckling A firm, chewy aglianico with cherry, walnut husk and some pepper. Medium body, slightly dried tannins and a medium finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate There is a lot of bright fruit and dark cherry in the 2018 Aglianico. This pure, fruity and rather stripped-down interpretation of Campania's mighty red grape offers freshness and a snappy, easy approach that would pair with pizza or little arancini stuffed with meat and cheese. You get terrific value. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator A sanguine note of iron and grilled beef is enmeshed with dried cherry and herb flavors in this chewy, light- to medium-bodied red, with a moderate finish. Drink now. 1,120 cases imported Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2017 James Suckling Red cherries, fresh herbs, red licorice and walnuts come to the fore. Steely and vibrant with driven acidity and a sour-cherry finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media The 2017 Terredora di Paolo Aglianico is intense, showing a spicy mix of crushed raspberries, laced with lavender, white smoke, and minerals, as hints of undergrowth and floral tones build in the glass. Soft textures flood the senses with contrasting tart wild berry fruit, minerals, and brisk acids, which adds energy and tugs at the senses. The finish is long, showing the first hint of young tannin, as purple-tinged black fruits slowly fade. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Wine Advocate The 2017 Aglianico is a simple and stripped-down expression with cassis, wild berry and lots of red fruit. The wine's primary intensity is clean and forthcoming. This is a perfect, lean-bodied red to pair with your favorite pizza topped with fresh mozzarella cheese. The natural acidity and tannins of the grape are well measured to keep the palate refreshed. Shelf Talker Full Page 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 Shelf Talker Full Page Review
