"The baby of the bunch (in this vertical tasting) is the 2010 Aglianico del Vulture Don Anselmo. The wine shows its youth in terms of fruit freshness and oak spice that is slowly being integrated into the fleshy richness of the wine. Having said that, the 2010 vintage also delivers amazing potential and pedigree. It offers the fullness of fruit and intensity found in the 2007 vintage with the elegance of 2008 and the mineral-driven personality of 2009. That assembly of moving parts finds perfect harmony in this current release. What is especially encouraging is the quality of tannins that offers firmness and structure without the astringency you usually get with Aglianico. I look forward to trying this wine ten years from now when it should be showing its full potential. Ultimately, Don Anselmo is a territory-driven wine that reflects the stubbornness and nostalgia of Basilicata. It is a wine that will speak to those, who like me, have a special fascination with this forgotten land."
