'Core' Campania IGT 94 pts VM Montevetrano Campagnia, IT $31.99 reg $26.99 on 1 $22.69 on 6+ US LOW (code: CORE)
94 pts Vinous Very deep purple-ruby; this is very dark for an Aglianico wine. Delicate on the nose and remarkably light on its feet, offering sweet blueberry, red cherry, sweet spice and floral flavors, similar to the aromas, that linger impressively on the juicy, long, clean finish. A knockout wine, and the best Aglianico ever from Montevetrano.
Native Wine Grapes of Italy,” Ian d’Agata wrote of aglianico: “Along with nebbiolo and sangiovese, it is generally believed to be one of Italy’s three best wine grapes, but in my opinion, it is far more: At the very least, it’s one of the world’s dozen or so best wine grapes.
Core is sourced from particular experimental Aglianico plots on the estate in San Cipriano and also from outside growers in the classical Benevento area who are working closely with Riccardo Cotarella.
