Etty’s Wine Pick: Grifalco Damaschito Aglianico del Vulture 2007

This dazzling organic and biodynamically grown Aglianico hails from the volcanic soils of Mount Vulture in Basilicata and is made in tiny quantities by a woman winemaker. Grippy, smoky, taut, and beautifully concentrated, this is everything you want in an Aglianico and more. Super elegant and velvety, while showing a bit of a masculine side in terms of its tannic structure and overall impression of power. Bitter cherry and chocolate deliciousness that is worth every penny. Pair with charred sirloin steaks drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar or pappardelle with lamb shank ragu.
