Despite Aglianico’s reputation as one of Italy’s most important red varietals, the grape’s profile is often not as recognizable as Sangiovese or Nebbiolo to most consumers. Its shy demeanor often takes a decade to reveal itself, but much like a Langhe Nebbiolo or a Rosso di Montalcino, this Kleos bottling serves as a proper window to the grape’s profile. The fruit consists of red currants, black cherries and figs. The acidity is vibrant, carrying a well-structured medium body that hints towards richness. The tannin profile borders on the sweet-herbal-smoky side with a naturally long spicy finish. This is a wonderful coastal, and transparent introduction to Aglianico.
