The 2016 Villa Matilde Aglianico Rocca dei Leoni Aglianico is a deep violet in the glass. Straight from the bottle the aromas are expressive. Crushed berry, wild flowers, spices and lavender. On the palate, this 100% Aglianico is vibrant and mouthwatering. Wild red berries are tantalizing. As a result of the stainless vinification, the flavors are pristine. Dusty minerals, fresh herbs and tobacco add complexity. I love this.
