Torre a Oriente Aglianico Janico 2011
Limpid, ruby red color with garnet-red shades and amaranth-red reflections. At the nose is both fruity and spicy with strong red fruits hints, mostly black cherry. The palate shows elegance, smoothness, warmth and extreme mouthfilling sensations. As most red wine grape from Southern Italy is dense and concentrated, it can age quite well and when mature will show fully but subtly fruit flavors and a certain earthiness.
