Aglianico is one of those grapes that entices me, but I've mostly only had the cheaper versions. This 'better' bottling has been on my list to try so when I saw the it on the wine list last night at the Chrysalis, I ordered it.
Spicy, dense blackberry flavor with coffee and pepper. It drinks well now, but showed particuarly well after about an hour when we got a glimpse of the fruit cake kind of flavors it will develop during further cellaring. $70 on the restaurant wine list, which I suspect is borderline rapacious.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
