Aglianico del Vulture 'Titolo' 2020

The Fucci's six hectares of vineyards are located on the Titolo lava channel of Monte Vulture in northern Basilicata, grown at 650 metres on a volcanic lava mix known locally as pozzolana. The viticulture is organic and tending the grapes is labour intensive, picked by hand and crushed in small batches. It is intensely aromatic with rich, ripe fruit, the palate full bodied with firm tannins and acidity, allowing it to age for many years. This is a wine that really speaks of its origins, both place and grape.

It's almost impossible to pull away from the darkly alluring and utterly radiant aromatics of the 2020 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo. With each swirl, tobacco, ash and forest floor give way to crushed violets, black currants and mint candies. It washes across the palate like pure silk, at first pliant and soothing, yet quickly gains a more tactile crunch, as mineral-tinged fruits saturate, and savory herbal tones resonate throughout. The 2020 finishes structured and incredibly long with notes of salted licorice, balsamic spice and cocoa that never seem to quit; and yet, through it all, residual acids keep the mouth-watering. This is deceptively attractive at this young stage, yet structured for the long haul-what a beauty. 95 points, Eric Guido - Vinous
