He says: This was the most fruit-forward of the three Aglianicos we tasted. Boring, basic, and simple. An easy-sipper if ever there was one. Drinkable, but unmemorable, and not very rustic.

She says: This wine lacked the structure of the other two wines. It was the lightest in body and acid with no oak influence; an easy drinking wine meant to be consumed young. I could imagine drinking this in the southern Italian heat when bigger red’s would be too heavy.
