A few years back, Bisceglia offered an Aglianico del Vulture Riserva, but this year I see that a newly minted Superiore has been added to the portfolio. The 2014 Aglianico del Vulture Superiore Gudarrà is a thickly extracted red wine with full-bodied intensity and rich texture. It's almost too much of a good thing, especially as those volcanic notes are especially pronounced (in this cooler-vintage expression that offers thinner fruit at its core). Those notes of scorched earth and campfire ash, along with a generous dose of oak spice, dominate this wine. It ages in tonneaux for 18 months. I would say that those characteristics sit too heavily over the bouquet of this hearty, bone-warming red wine. Extra bottle time might help integrate some of that intensity, maybe. Only 6,000 bottles were made.
