" Elena Fucci always comes out with some of my favorite wines from the Vulture volcano. Despite the heat of the vintage, the 2017 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo comes across as more closed and rigid at first. It takes a few moments to open in the glass and then becomes very generous and expressive. I can't help but recommend a few years in the cellar before you pop the cork. Black fruit is followed by inky tar, resin and asphalt. The Titolo is tightly rolled into one firmly textured and tightly knit expression that truly blossoms when it breathes."
