Aglianico del Tabruno Fidelis 2017
The 2017 Aglianico Fidelis took me by surprise. I usually only like dry, tannic Aglianicos from Mastroberardino, for example, but I had this bottle before my tasting on Wed. We opened it the night before with some pizza and the two of us drank the whole bottle without even realizing it. The secret of this wine? There a 10% blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that helps keep the racy and super structured Aglianico grape in check; I was floored. This simple wine drank seamlessly, was balanced, was fruit forward enough to caress the palate but not overly so. The supple, opulent quality is met with elevated acidity thanks to the vineyard altitudes ranging from 650ft to 2000ft. At $18 per bottle you get all this?? Yes please.
