Grifalco Aglianico del Vulture DOC Gricos Basilicata
Grifalco Aglianico del Vulture DOC Gricos Basilicata 2019 Italy
Press 91Pts Vinous "The 2019 Aglianico del Vulture Gricos pulls you close with an exotic bouquet that mixes orange and grapefruit with blackberries and sage. This is silky-smooth and textural, yet almost salty, presenting a savory display of mineral-tinged black fruits and contrasting sour citrus. An air of violet florals and lavender lingers through the lightly structured finale, creating a youthfully pleasant grip without ever slowing the 2019’s momentum. A beautiful and balanced performance, especially when you consider that this is the entry-level Aglianico from Grifalco"
