Wine tasting note: 1996 Martino Aglianico del Vulture VQPRD

1996 Martino Aglianico del Vulture VQPRD

27th May 2001 Italy Table Red

Bright, even, pale cherry with some pinking at rim.
Quite meaty nose with soft cherry fruit, some cream, old oak.
Tangy red fruit and pepper, with well integrated charred oak and juicy, slightly sour acidity. Bit thin on the finish but lovely spicy flavours throughout. Very good but needs drinking up. Needs food, excellent with salami.
