Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The ’12 Bocca di Lupo explodes from the glass in a shower of brambly blue fruits, licorice, sun-warmed earth, new saddle leather, violet petals and baking spices. Textured and satisfying, this wine fills the mouth and suffuses the palate with a weighty feel, electric acidity and chewy, elegant tannins. As delicious as this Antinori bottling is right now, it has the stuffing to age for decades, growing mellow and silky with maturity. After allowing the Aglianico grapes to ripen fully, Tormaresca vinifies them in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ferments in barrique for fifteen months and ages in the bottle for two years before release. While Aglianico frequently requires time in the cellar before enjoyment, this bottle from Antinori's Tormaresca allows for earlier approachability, yet it sacrifices nothing to longevity.
