Sourced from a high elevation site, this was the last varietal to be picked by Leonetti in 2013. Aged in a combination of clay amphorae and oak puncheons, the wine is one of the only Aglianico plantings in Washington. The nose is intense and highly perfumed with dried sage, toasty oak, blackberry pie, dusty earth and mocha. The mouthfeel is truly outstanding, as the wine slowly unveils flavors of black tea, wild blackberry pie, coffee grounds and dusty tannins towards the back end. Give this at least another year in the bottle for the tannins to fully settle.
