What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Raffaele’s Aglianico holdings are the stuff of legend: 1.2 hectares of ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines between 150 and 200 years of age, trained high above the ground and spaced widely, with gnarled trunks and vast arms that occasionally touch across the rows. This astonishing parcel is located in the commune of Paternopoli, in the Taurasi appellation’s southernmost and coolest subzone, although Raffaele produces a Taurasi DOCG only in certain vintages. In other vintages, he produces this wine: “I Viaggiatori” (“The Travelers”), a gutsy but finesse-driven Aglianico that spends slightly less time in barrel and typically bears a slightly lower alcohol level than the Taurasi proper. Aged in used oak barrels following a 15-day maceration in old open-top wooden casks, “I Viaggiatori” combines tangy, resonant acidity with dark cherry fruit, and while its tannins are a bit punchy as per the variety, the lingering impression is one of freshness.
