“Il Sigillo” 2011-12 – Robert Parker 95 points
Cantine Del Notaio – Basilicata (14.5%). Grape Varieties: 100% Aglianico del Vulture
This is a modern wine and one of great beauty. It is red in colour with warm, granite tones. It is not immediately noticeable on the nose, but suddenly exudes aromas of red and black berries that gradually give way to notes of tobacco, oriental spices, liquorice, chocolate, and puffs of minerals, contained within a deep, opulent bouquet. The flavour is full and expressive. The after taste is Long-lasting and offers pleasant sensations of fruit, spices, and refreshing eucaliptus until the very last moment.
