  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Lots of juicy berry and plum, with hints of spice and mineral. Full-bodied, with spicy fresh fruit on the palate, firm tannins and a clean, minerally finish. Nicely done. Give it a while. Best wine ever from here. Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The 2001 Bocca di Lupo is a wine which demonstrates that the Aglianico grown in the northwestern part of Puglia, just a short distance from the Basilicata, can compete with the best of Italy's south. Smoky and balsamic on the nose with intense and expansive notes of raspberries and blackberries, cloves, mint, and high-roast coffee, its packed, strappingly muscular, and dense flavors continue in a seamless flow over the palate, softening as they move but still totally mouth-filling and explosively powerful. The only regret is that these wines are released too early and will probably be drunk too early as well - this is a bottle which I would not touch until 2007, and it will still be going strong in 2020.

    No quite right. Could be faulty.
