95 points and $14 !!!

It will be hard to find a wine that over delivers more than the 2015 Feudi San Gregorio Aglianico Rubrato. Back up the truck for this amazing deal.
2015 Feudi di San Gregorio Rubrato Aglianico...$13.99
This shows such a beautiful density and texture with licorice and blackberry character. Full and layered yet always tight and focused. A fantastic young red. Drink or hold.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling

A little more about Aglianico the grape
The vine originated in Greece and was brought to the south of Italy by Greek settlers. The name may be a corruption of vitis hellenica, Latin for "Greek vine." Another etymology posits a corruption of Apulianicum, the Latin name for the whole of southern Italy in the time of ancient Rome. During this period, it was the principal grape of the famous Falernian wine, the Roman equivalent of a first-growth wine today.  Info from Wikipedia
