I'm going to come right out and say it: if you purchase anything for yourself today, make it our Six-Pack Special, the 2015 La Guardiense Aglianico Benevento. The Benevento is a full-bodied, robust and freakishly delicious southern Italian seductress that TOTALLY outperforms its ridiculously low price of $8 per bottle. What could be better than a wine priced for everyday enjoyment that tastes like a special occasion splurge? NOTHING, amiright?

The deets: Aglianico is grown in southern Italy (Campania and Basilicata) and has a history dating thousands of years. It thrives in areas with high temperatures, abundant sunshine and volcanic soil. Tailor-made for the area, it brings forth wines that are full-bodied, loaded with fruit characters and grippy tannins. Aglianicos pack a punch to the palate, and it is rare to find one of this quality for less than a sawbuck.

The Benevento opens with aromas of blackberries, sage and underbrush. Its flavors and texture will take you by surprise. The wine abounds with dark, brooding fruit characters: back cherries, raspberries and cassis envelope your palate, while firm tannins and accents of savory herbs add depth and complexity. Full-bodied and silky-smooth, restrained use of oak and vibrant acidity keep it light on its feet. This wine will be a stellar accompaniment to roasts, steaks, burgers, pizza and pasta, but if you and your guests decide to enjoy a glass as an aperitif, be prepared to keep a second bottle on deck for dinner. It will be sure to disappear well before the meal is ready. Cheers!
