The wine has a ruby red color with garnet reflections, a broad and intense bouquet with hints of ripe fruit. It is soft and velvety in the mouth, very harmonious with a dense body, rightly tannic with a black cherry aftertaste. Ideal with savoury foods, rich meats with high fat content, game and cheese. Pair this wine also with vegetarian dishes such as roasted vegetables and Parmigiana di Melanzane as well as with legumes.

Ashen soils, crushed stone, animal musk, plum and exotic savory spices can all be found in the dark and sultry 2016 Aglianico Riserva Contado. It's velvety yet not weighty, energized by bright acidity with tart black fruits, minerals and grippy tannins that saturate the senses. There are unseen depths here which are currently restrained by the Contado's hulking structure, yet there's also a harmony that tempts the imagination as to what's to come. Currants, wild herbs, salted licorice and hints of tobacco linger long. This is like a well-muscled stallion, yet it needs some time in the cellar to soften.

Plenty of warm spice tones are prominent on the nose, with anise, clove and tobacco riding over the ripe black cherry core. This is supple in feel, with mellow tannins and bright acidity yielding a rounded, easy texture.
