From the master of Montepulciano, Antonio Lamona delivers his signature combination of power and finesse with one of the most difficult varietals of all: Aglianico. La Quercia is an uncertified organic estate, and this wine, harvested from a single cru owned by the family in Puglia, really delivers. With the classic ripe plum and spice notes this varietal is known for, it is a rare opportunity to taste Aglianico in a fresh, immediate style. Setting it apart from Aglianico elsewhere in Italy’s south are notes of approachable, sweet tobacco and soft, deftly managed tannins.
