Ruby red in color with violet towards the rim. Shows aromas of red fruit and light vanilla. Full red fruit with hints leather and spice on the palate. Medium-bodied with good acidity,soft tannins and medium oak on the lingering finish. Great southern Italian red for sipping, rich first courses, meat, or anything grilled.

"The 2006 Aglianico Beneventano is absolutely delicious in this vintage, not to mention a terrific value. This plump, juicy red offers plenty of varietal character in its dark cherries, herbs, leather and earthiness, with notable clarity and lovely overall balance. A forward, fruit-driven Aglianico, it is best enjoyed on the young side. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012."
