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 is a black skinned grape most commonly associated with the exquisite wines of the Campania region of Italy. It thrives most happily in hot and dry climates, and as such, has had plenty of success in the New World, particularly in the United States, where it is used to great effect in many red wines. It was believed to come from Greece several thousand years ago, brought by Pheonician tradesman, and was wildly popular in Roman times, when it was used in the finest wines made by the Roman empire. Aglianico grapes produce full bodied red wines which have a high tannin and acid content. As such, it has excellent ageing potential, and with a standard amount of time in a barrel, it rounds out and mellows to produce beautifully balanced wines.

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.
