This is the entry-level Aglianico from Cantine del Notaio. The 2014 L'Atto delivers great bang for your buck. The bouquet offers depth and intensity with savory notes of spice, ash, scorched earth and dried berries. Aglianico is never very strong when it comes to offering fruit-driven primary aromas. Instead, even in its youth, this mighty grape from southern Italy offers more sophistication and nobility than you might expect. It is never outwardly fruity. Instead, Aglianico reveals a fundamentally austere, dry and savory side.

This light- to medium-bodied red is bright and creamy, with flavors of crushed black cherry and blackberry fruit, accented by notes of herb, tar and spice. Mouthwatering, showing light tannins on the finish. Aglianico. Drink now through 2019. 1,200 cases imported.
