To Quote Vinous's Ian D'Agata: "Aglianico del Vulture is potentially one of the world's - not just Italy's - greatest wines and no single bottling demonstrates its quality better than the Titolo."

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

(8/31/2018) "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. Drink Date: 2019 - 2035."

Decanter: 91 Points

(3/9/2020) "Taking over the winemaking from her father, Salvatore, whose vineyards are at 650m on the slopes of volcanic Mount Vulture, Elena Fucci has made an expressive, elegant Aglianico, whose fresh aromas of rosemary and thyme lead to a lively, textured cherry-fruited palate reminiscent of fine Barbera, the sinewy texture gently polished by French oak and etched with vivid volcanic acidity."
