  • 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
