  4. Gudarrà Aglianico del Vulture DOC

The Bisceglia estate is situated on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano, Mount Vulture, in the historic district of Lavello.  Gudarrà, in local dialect, means "to be enjoyed."  The name of the wine is a tribute to its concentrated flavors, which beg the drinker to enjoy another glass. 

Tasting Notes

Gudarrà is deep ruby-red in color with violet hues and enticing notes of red cherries, cassis, blackberries, and sweet spice.  On the palate, balanced tannins and integrated alcohol make for an elegantly smooth wine that is truly "to be enjoyed."

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted game, spicy tomato-based sauces, southern Italian pasta dishes, and slow-cooked beef stews.
