2017 Mastrodomenico Aglianico del Vulture “Likos” (Campania)
Historically the Mastrodomenico family sold their grapes (from Rapolla) to some of the region’s household names, but with Giuseppe and his sister Emanuela taking over the reigns, they have started to put such excellent fruit to better use. ‘Likos’ is their flagship wine and with a broad and complex bouquet, a richly textured, firm tannic structure and an intense aura of black cherry, it bodes well for the future. Although ‘Likos’ benefits from bottle ageing, taking on softer tannins and silkier mouth feel, the cherry and liquorice fused aroma is characteristically persistent. Consequently this is a wine that can be cellared for up to 10 years and potentially longer.
