Hither & Yon Aglianico 2013

Licorice root, amaro/bitter wood and herb - deliciously savoury with a dark undercurrent.

Yet, for that darkness, it squarely fits the H&Y profile of producing deliciously appealing wines. Fruit, by way of cherry and plum, with a moreish tang and juiciness. 

That black edge reappears on the back palate - a little licorice root against the lighter touch of raspberry over spice. Conclusion? A possibly conservative 90
