A very late harvest in 2004 produced one of the most profoundly complex Aglianico cuvées we've ever encountered-a "Titolo" cross-section would reveal more layers than a 1,000-year-old redwood. Marionberries and blueberries make up its fresh, juicy core, with touches of smoke and ash that speak of its smoldering birthplace. Baking spices and licorice perfumes abound. Velvety tannins provide great grip and are seamlessly integrated into the whole. Just try to set a stopwatch to "Titolo"-its complexity, purity and profound depth makes time slow to a crawl. Simply outstanding.

The 2004 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo is a wine of amazing beauty. Its personality is timid and understated initially, but its true spirit comes alive with confident and articulate tones as the wine slowly opens in the glass. Nothing is obvious about the 2004 Titolo. It is sleek and flirtatious, revealing what it wants to show one delicate aroma at a time. Dried fruit, cassis, bright berry, earthy tones, crushed mineral and exotic spice peel off layer by layer. The wine shows an inky dark, garnet color with lively highlights of ruby and crimson. Its concentration is equally bold and dense with a perfect, although seemingly oxymoronic weightless determination that underlines its pedigree and elegance. In the mouth, Titolo exhibits firm, but polished and fine tannins that add to the overall textural richness. This vintage shows all the qualities for long aging.
