The 2019 Irpinia Aglianico Terra d'Eclano is a selection of fruit from two parcels on the estate. Decisions regarding the final blend are taken on a vintage-by-vintage basis. What is achieved in this growing season is balanced acidity and very well integrated tannins that support the wine—and its abundant flavors of dark plum, blackberry and spice—without feeling astringent. It's also worth noting the brilliant dark ruby hue of this wine. There were two other vintages I tasted during this sitting (from 2018 and 2017), and all three wines are lively and bright.
