Tenuta I Gelsi
Basilicata Del Vulture Aglianico 2011
Tenuta I Gelsi – Balsilicata 2011 / Aglianico del Vulture 100% (84/100 tsomw points)
In the glass a deep ruby red color with garnet hues.
On the nose aromas of currants, blackberries, plums, cloves, chocolate, licorice with hints of black pepper and tobacco.
On the palate powerful, dry, fleshy and structured but also soft and elegant. Good balance with a nice sour voltage and a salinity that enhances the drinkability.
