Grifalco 2017 "Grifalco" Aglianico del Vulture 750ml
The 2017 Aglianico del Vulture Grifalco is a darkly saturated and brooding expression with thick lines, dark fruit and spice. Despite all that aromatic intensity, the wine cuts over the palate in a very direct and fast-moving fashion, thanks to the pronounced acidity and tannic definition. This makes it a nice pairing for an oily meat dish such as the region's agnello alla lucana, lamb shoulder roasted on a bed of tomatoes, onions and potatoes.
