    December 24, 2020 - Alot of structure, big tannins that have mellowed across 9 years. Blackberries, prunes and bramble. Mineral backbone, smoke, and dry earth. A wonderful grape and wine.

    November 13, 2020 - Bottle # 2 of 5 I bought at auction. As good as the first one! This wine has alot of structure to it,and a fair amount of sediment in the bottle. Wild Blackberry, tobacco, leather, tar, and licorice. I predict I will continue to enjoy this wine in the years ahead!

    September 27, 2020 - Roses, blackberries, black figs, black pepper, tar on the nose, with some alcoholic heat. Sweet tannic fruit on the palate with a lovely crisp acid frame. Excellent with kofta.

    September 27, 2020 - An interesting wine and flavor profile. Aglianico grape. Quite bold and very dry, firm chewy tannins. Dark and red fruits, smoke and tar, tobacco, minerals, licorice. Alot of sediment. This one has plenty of life ahead.

    (Elena Fucci Aglianico del Vulture Titolo) Hello friends. Monte Vulture is an extinct volcano smack in the middle of Basilicata in southern Italy (due east of Naples). Its foothills contain vineyards planted almost entirely to one of the finest, longest-lived red varieties in Italy: Aglianico, here called Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. This is a part of Italy where the younger generations have been fleeing agriculture in droves. But Elena Fucci decided to stay, and to make exactly one wine each year: Monte Vulture is an extinct volcano smack in the middle of Basilicata in southern Italy (due east of Naples). Its foothills contain vineyards planted almost entirely to one of the finest, longest-lived red varieties in Italy: Aglianico. And Elena Fucci may just make the greatest Aglianico on Monte Vulture. Her ’11 is all blackberry fruit, star anise, and that very Italian sense of bitters, like a dash of Aperol in the mix. We have 32 extra bottles. Vinous: Copyrighted material withheld.
