"A dark yet bright red, with ample acidity backing the wild black currant and cherry fruit, displaying hints of grilled herb, olive and bitter almond. Drink now. 800 cases made. –NW"

" With a deep purple color with a touch of ruby, Repertorio reveals notes of primary fruit, with fresh cherry and strawberry on the nose, a prelude to this pleasantly rich, fruit-forward wine with hints of vanilla, white pepper and soft tannins. It is a great medium-bodied red to accompany any meal and to drink by the glass.
100% Aglianico grapes, macerated for 15 days on the skins. Aged for one year in second-passage barriques. Il Repertorio is soft and balanced after as little as one month in the bottle.

The vineyards of the renowned Aglianico del Vulture DOC are located on the steep, black volcanic slopes of Mount Vulture in northern Basilicata, where high altitudes between 450 and 620 meters ensure a long period of ripening and provide for excellent structure and complexity. In March of 2010 Aglianico del Vulture was elevated to DOCG status making it Basilicata's only recognized DOCG.

Upon inheriting the Cantine del Notaio estate from his father, a notary public and namesake of the winery, Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti took aim at restoring the ancient glory to the wines of the Vulture. Together with his wife Marcella (below) and famed enologist Luigi Muoio, they rebuilt and restructured the winery to become the internationally recognized superstar they are today. These handmade Aglianico wines from the esteemed Rionero zone are fragrant and sweet in the nose, with powerful yet restrained tannins and dense blue- and blackberry fruit with licorice notes. The estate's 27 hectares are divided into 5 different vineyards, and with the exception of 1 very old-vine vineyard, each is planted with identical plants of the same age. Notaio’s cellars are located in a group of ten underground tuffa grottos dated to the early 1600s (above) that once belonged to Franciscan monks. The estate is at the forefront of clonal experimentation, with 40 different ancient clones currently under cultivation for study by the Lucanian Agency for Agricultural Development. Cantine del Notaio is Certified Organic and Biodynamic. " ~ Winery notes

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW
A great introduction to Aglianico
"I have always been a fan of Aglianico and the Cantine dei Notaio did not disappoint. A truly complex red that ranges from medium to heavy bodied seamlessly between flavors. There is a slight tart cherry flavor on the first sip that works perfectly with a finish of strawberries and a just a hint of chocolate on the nose. This varietal is a gem out of Southern Italy that most people miss out on. Think Nebbiolo meets Chianti..Bold enough to stand on its own or a perfect companion to a nice steak dinner."
