2013 Eubea Covo dei Briganti Aglianico del Vulture


Basiliciata is home to a thriving brigand culture that gives hero status to the bandits rumored to hide in this rugged territory. The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Covo dei Briganti is dedicated to the notion of this romantic brigandage. The wine is austere and deep with dark shadows and rough transitions. It is a seductive and unpredictable red wine with dark fruit tones, volcanic stone and exotic spice. Yet, it all comes together with seamless harmony in the mouth. ~93pts, WA
