2014 AMADIO Heritage Selection Aglianico - Single Vineyard, Barossa Valley
Intense fruit flavours, complexity and length that deliver through to the palate.
Similar in style to the Amadio Sagrantino, this wine offers ripe fruit aromas and flavours but with darker fruit characteristics than that of its Italian counterpart. More black cherry as opposed to raspberry and riper red fruit flavours. Substantial but very fine grain tannins, complimented well by the acid to produce an intense all round mouth-feel. Review from Tony Love, The Advertiser 30/01/2013: Another southern Italian which has migrated well to Australia, cramming in a load of actio that seems to reflect its new home - dusty, herby, full-bodied, dark-fruited and a ball of vinous energy. It's showing a fair bit of grip-through fine and ripe, and has a good, refreshing bite in the finish that suits the summer table groaning with fresh vegies and fruits.
