Gudarrà Aglianico del Vulture Riserva DOC 2007

The Bisceglia estate is situated on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano Mount Vulture, in the historic district of Lavello.  Gudarrà, in local dialect, means "to be enjoyed."  The Riserva is their top wine and with its deep, concentrated flavors, it is certainly a wine which is meant "to be enjoyed."

Tasting Notes

Gudarrà is deep red in color, aromas of baked red cherries complement undertones of cassis, blackberry jam, and sweet spices.  On the palate, balanced tannins and integrated alcohol make for a beautifully integrated and complex wine.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted game, spicy tomato-based sauces, southern Italian pasta dishes, and slow-cooked beef stews.
