CANTINE DEL NOTAIO Aglianico del Vulture Il Sigillo 2006

The 2006 Cantine del Notaio Aglianico del Vulture Il Sigillo doses out tons of ripe black fruit, herbs, freshly turned earth, and sweet currant notes. This has a full body with a very round and polished structure. What is very intriguing about this wine is it starts out very fruit forward and sweet and finishs up dry and chewy, almost like a strange New-World Aussie Shiraz/Old-World Italian hybrid. This is 100% Aglianico del Vulture grapes from a single historic vineyard, located on the Contrada Cerentino hillside in the village of Maschito. The grapes are harvested fully over-ripened towards the end of November, and undergo a long maceration, lasting about a month. - February, 2012 (JD)
