      Dark ruby red, in the Bouquet aromas of ripe, red fruits and a fine wood spice. Elegant, soft, complex and fresh, the taste is exuberant and very flattering. A masterpiece from the Basilicata! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's another great vintage from Elena Fucci, the ascending star of a rising wine region in the deep south of Italy. The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo shows a dark garnet color and robust appearance. Very characteristic of this extreme territory, this is a dark and penetrating wine with etched mineral notes behind blackberry, plum and savory spice. This vintage presents an even darker quality of fruit. In the mouth, you get iron, blood and dark mineral nuances that are absolutely typical of these darkened volcanic soils." Robert Parker

      "Fresh and well-meshed, this is a medium- to full-bodied red, with creamy tannins and a rich note of smoke-tinged mineral underscoring the lovely range of ripe black cherry, dried thyme and fig cake flavors and hints of ground cumin and white pepper. This is round and finely balanced, with a long, lingering finish that echoes the spice and mineral detail." Wine Spectator

      "Elena Fucci crafts one single wine. The piercing and focused Titolo exudes incense, violet, dark earth and black cherry. Volcanic soil translates with vibrant energy. Muscular rather than plump and built to last." Decanter

      Dark ruby red, in the Bouquet aromas of ripe, red fruits and a fine wood spice. Elegant, soft, complex and fresh, the taste is exuberant and very flattering. A masterpiece from the Basilicata! SUPERIORE.DE

      "On the ‘Titolo’ lava channel, at 650m of altitude, grows this extraordinary Aglianico. It expresses its volcanic lava and ash origins - known locally as ‘pozzolana’ - and soil combined with altitude here contribute to bring this masculine grape to perfect ripeness. Dark in colour and meaty on the nose, it shows anchovy, iodine and tell-tale incense minerality. It has a firm, well extracted mid-palate and is slightly chalky on the finish, yet in a relaxing drinking style." Decanter

      "Elena Fucci's 2016 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo is a wine built for the long haul. It should continue its steady evolution over the next 20 years if not more. Stitched together with enormous precision, the wine offers balanced intensity and a beautiful level of fruit purity that speaks both to the Aglianico grape and the extreme territory that shapes it. This vintage finishes on a dry note with fine texture and elegantly integrated tannins. The wine is aged in barrique for 12 months, of which half is new oak with various levels of toast. The vines range from 50 to 70 years old and are planted up to 650 meters above sea level. Some 28,000 bottles were produced." Robert Parker

      Dark ruby red, in the Bouquet aromas of ripe, red fruits and a fine wood spice. Elegant, soft, complex and fresh, the taste is exuberant and very flattering. A masterpiece from the Basilicata! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo offers a rich and savory interpretation. The wine reveals earthy notes of freshly tilled earth and button mushroom and it also shows autumnal layers of crushed leaf and black currant. Together, these various elements come together in smooth harmony. The fruit element at the back is a good guarantee of the wine's future aging potential. The finish offers solid tannins and earthy grittiness." Robert Parker

      "Bright ruby. Piercing aromas of sour red cherry, black currant, violet and lavender. Then dense, sweet and complex, offering very pure mineral, deep plum and smoky berry flavors that have an almost metallic, steely quality. A wine of remarkable balance and finesse, but also powerful and concentrated. Absolutely gorgeous wine confirming the 2013 vintage to be a great one for Aglianico del Vulture."

      “Titolo” Aglianico del Vulture Riserva DOC 2013 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Here comes the first vintage of the new Titolo Riserva, which is exclusively bottled in 400 numbered Magnum bottles and will therefore hardly appear on the market. A highly complex red with the scent of dried flowers, blackberry and crushed rock. The tannins are well integrated and this wine is already today not only a coveted rarity, but a new star in the firmament of southern Italian wines. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's a new discovery that I'd like to broadcast far and near. This Riserva is a new wine from Elena Fucci that was initiated with this vintage. It is a limited-edition wine made only in magnums. In fact, I tasted bottle number 1 of 400 made to write this review. The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Superiore Riserva Titolo is a dark and savory expression with an evolved and profound bouquet that covers all the bases. It offers dried fruit and blackberry with smoke, ash and crushed river stone. That mineral identity is the wine's most important defining characteristic. Aglianico tends to deliver astringent tannins, but this Riserva shows excellent integration and structural management. A new benchmark wine for southern Italy has just been created." Robert Parker

    • "Titolo" Aglianico del Vulture DOC 2015<br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “Titolo” Aglianico del Vulture DOC 2015 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Dark ruby red, in the Bouquet aromas of ripe, red fruits and a fine wood spice. Elegant, soft, complex and fresh, the taste is exuberant and very flattering. A masterpiece from the Basilicata! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's another great vintage from Elena Fucci, the ascending star of a rising wine region in the deep south of Italy. The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo shows a dark garnet color and robust appearance. Very characteristic of this extreme territory, this is a dark and penetrating wine with etched mineral notes behind blackberry, plum and savory spice. This vintage presents an even darker quality of fruit. In the mouth, you get iron, blood and dark mineral nuances that are absolutely typical of these darkened volcanic soils." Robert Parker

      "Fresh and well-meshed, this is a medium- to full-bodied red, with creamy tannins and a rich note of smoke-tinged mineral underscoring the lovely range of ripe black cherry, dried thyme and fig cake flavors and hints of ground cumin and white pepper. This is round and finely balanced, with a long, lingering finish that echoes the spice and mineral detail." Wine Spectator

      "Elena Fucci crafts one single wine. The piercing and focused Titolo exudes incense, violet, dark earth and black cherry. Volcanic soil translates with vibrant energy. Muscular rather than plump and built to last." Decanter

    About the winemakers
    Elena Fucci
    Basilicata
    Elena Fucci

    No writer could have better invented the story of Elena Fucci and her wine Titolo. Elena grew up in a house that stood amidst her grandfather's vineyards. Like her brothers, she wanted to study and leave the rather lonely area. When the first buyers came to the door to visit the vineyards, she changed her mind, convinced grandfather and father to keep the vineyards, commuted some time between her university in Pisa and Basilicata, came back as a doctor of oenology and founded a vineyard where she produced only one wine. And what a guy! Titolo. For years one of the highest awarded wines in Italy.

    A woman. A grape variety. A wine. Incredible story.

    Titolo means title, heading. The wine is the headliner of Basilicata. The Aglianico grape variety grows at around 600 metres above sea level below the extinct Monte Vulture volcano. The variation here is called Aglianico del Vulture. This is also the name of the DOC area, which covers only 1,500 hectares in the province of Potenza. 7 hectares of which are Elena Fucci's refuge. The vines are around 60 years old and stand on ancient, weathered volcanic rock. Up here the wind always blows, the seasons change from quite cold winters to quite hot summers, as well as the temperature differences between day and night are quite extreme. Wind, mineral-rich volcanic soil and temperature changes - ideal conditions. Anyone who has ever seen her grapes will never forget them, they are real splendid specimens.

    Decades ago Aglianico often landed in this area on the tables of the nobles. That's how he got the nickname "Barolo of the South". The comparison is not at all absurd, because elegance, color and structure as well as shelf life can quite resemble a powerful Barolo.

    Old vines, modern cellar technology and an ambitious young winemaker.

    A wonderful success story for almost 20 years. Enjoy with us many more fantastic vintages of the volcano, which by the way have a wonderful ripening potential. SUPERIORE.DE
