Want a thrill? Can you say “Iron Fist in the Velvet Glove”! The “Barolo of the South”….. Rustic and stout when young, but smooth, and charmingly supple with extended cellaring. Salvatore Molettieri! One of the region’s most respected and finest producers of Aglianico. Just released, 100 cases imported directly from the winery’s cellar. Our three case allocation sold out instantly, but we lucked out and were granted two more cases of this extraordinary Aglianico! If you have enjoyed Salvatore’s previous 2006 and 2008 vintages, Quintodecimo Terre d’ Eclano 2014, or Waterfall’s Aglianico from the El Dorado-Sierra Foothills, then you owe it to yourself to try this beauty! Excellent cellaring potential!
“A deep, plush, full-bodied red, with dense tannins that are well-meshed to flavors of black cherry pâte de fruit, olive paste, cured tobacco, spice box, iron and graphite. Big and brooding, this nonetheless maintains a sense of elegance throughout. Best from 2022 through 2032. 1,000 cases made, 100 cases imported.”—95 points A.N.- Wine Spectator ADVANCE – November 30th Edition.
