Montevetrano Core Aglianico 2015
Wine AdvocateThis is the more accessible, second-tier wine from the formidable Silvia Imparato, owner of Montevetrano in Salerno province. The 2015 Aglianico Core is a rich and exuberant red wine that is characterized by dark, succulent fruit. The bouquet shows background tones of exotic spice, camphor ash, Indian furniture wax or resin. The wine ages in French oak for ten months.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of dark fruit, mocha and vanilla lead the nose. The firm palate offers raspberry jam, licorice and black pepper alongside close-grained tannins that grip the finish.
Wine SpectatorRipe and aromatic, with melted licorice, sappy black cherry, baking spice and olive notes set in a bright, light- to medium-bodied frame. Modest finish. Aglianico. Drink now.
