3 bottles of 2020 Grifalco 'Grifalco' Aglianico
When the Piccin family relocated from their native Tuscany to Basilicata, it was because they believed in the promise of the volcanic soils of Campania. And when they named this, their flagship cuvee, after their winery itself, the reason was simple - *this* was the best expression of the terroir and chief varietal of their adopted home, a snapshot of pure, unadulterated Aglianico. Sourced from each of their four vineyards and vinified entirely in stainless and cement, this bottling represents in the Piccin’s minds what Aglianico del Vulture should be and is capable of. Sweet black cherry, wild fennel, and spicebox aromatics, firm tannins and bright acidity throughout. Platonic, pure Campania.
