Professional Wine Reviews for Bisceglia Aglianico Del Vulture Gudarra 2005

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The estate's 2005 Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra is made from the oldest vines on the property, although this is a very young winery, so vine age must be considered in relative terms. The Gudarra is a sumptuous, super-ripe Aglianico that boasts an expansive, creamy-textured core of jammy blueberries, spices, minerals and new French oak. Still remarkably youthful, this exuberant wine will only get better in bottle although it is pretty irresistible today. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.

Additional Information on Bisceglia Aglianico Del Vulture Gudarra 2005

Winery: Bisceglia

Varietal: Aglianico

Aglianico grapes are typically grown in the Campania region of southern Italy, where they have been an important grape varietal since the height of the Roman empire. The Romans adored their deep garnet coloured wines, and the Aglianico grape provided a beautiful colour along with high acid levels and a strong tannin content, which made it wildly popular both then and today. Nowadays, the finest Aglianico wines are usually aged in wood to soften their strong tannins, and this process allows the grapes to reveal their complex flavours of plum and chocolate, along with plenty of pleasing dark fruit and berry aromas. Often, Aglianico grapes are blended with Bordeaux varietals to make a wonderfully balanced wine. The varietal thrives most successfully in hot and dry regions, and has a particular affinity for volcanic soils.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
