Cantine Polvanera Aglianico 2008
IGT Puglia, Italy $18.65 13.0% alcohol
The price-quality balance tips wildly in your favour. Plum, cedar and exotic spice aromas segue palate-coating, ripe, juicy fruit with dark briary berry and spice-laden black plum to the fore. It’s medium-full bodied and well balanced with a silky smooth texture, excellent structure and wonderful moderating acidity throughout. There’s ripe supple tannin and oodles of dark cherry, black licorice and berry fruit on the lengthy aftertaste. Order by the case delivered to your home or office from Nokhrin Wines. (Vic Harradine)
