Review:
The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Macarì opens to a dark, impenetrable appearance and sheer thickness that is unmatched by its peers in this cool vintage. The bouquet exhibits dark fruit, blackberry preserves, graham cracker, crushed stone, rum cake and licorice. Compared to other Aglianico del Vulture wines from 2013, Macarì presents a unique array of aromas that are rounder and more opulent in presentation. That softness continues to the palate where the wine is extra velvety and supple.
