2015 Elena Fucci Titolo Aglianico del Vulture, Basilicata

From dark volcanic soils in the south of Italy, this is a wine of real soul. It's deep and complex, with dark berry fruit and notes of scorched earth and flowers. There's remarkable precision here, with a finish that lasts for minutes. This is surely one of the best wines of Italy - how it's available at this price is a mystery.

2015 Elena Fucci Titolo Aglianico del Vulture, Basilicata
Elena Fucci

Elena Fucci founded her winery in 2000, at a time when the family were deciding whether to sell the vineyards that her grandfather, Generoso, had bought in the 1960s. The grapes were always sold on, until Elena finished her winemaking degree and, fortunately, took over the family property. She makes just one wine, Titolo, from the vineyards that are still farmed by her 86 year old grandfather, which is now in its 17th vintage. And that wine is one of the most respected in Italy. Indeed, Ian d’Agata has written, “Aglianico del Vulture is potentially one of the world’s - not just Italy’s - greatest wines and no single bottling demonstrates its quality better than the Titolo.”
