    Winemaker's Notes:

    Contado is ruby-red in color with light garnet hues. The full and intense bouquet reveals ample amounts of ripe currants and blackberries, well balanced by spicy notes of almonds, rhubarb and herbs. Contado is full-bodied with fine-grained tannins surrounding a soft, velvety and lingering finish. Recommended with full-flavored first courses, wild game, fillet mignon and other roasted meats. Excellent with cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Aglianico Contado is a great example of Aglianico from Molise. There is terrific vibrancy and focus here, despite the wine's big size, with generous fruit layered into black pepper and wild herbs. This full-bodied red is ready to go now, and should continue to improve over the following years. The estate gives the Contado 18 months in oak of various sizes.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is a modern, 'New World' wine that boasts plush softness and a thick, velvety texture. Pair this wine with succulent beef, lamb or any meat that can stand up to its firm texture and solid tannins. Aromas include chocolate fudge, leather, allspice and clove.
