$108.87

2014

Aglianico is a grape grown in the southern regions of Italy, It is considered with Sangiovese and Nebbiolo to be one of the three greatest Italian red varieties. Boca di Lupo is a pure expression of Aglianico, Tormaresca was among the first (maybe the first) to make top shelf Aglianico in Puglia. One-quarter of the wine sees new oak (French and Hungarian) for 15 to 20 months. The rest sees second- and third-year neutral barrel. The aromas are impressive with little touches of black licorice, tar and resin that add pretty contours to darkly extracted fruit. Bold cherry and toasted almond give depth and dimension. Tight tannins and bright acidity bode well for the wine’s aging potential.
