Our online feature this week is the Tenuta del Portale Starsa (Basilicata, Italy) – $18.49, regularly $23.49.

Established in 1990 thanks to the passion of the D’Angelo family , Tenuta del Portale is located in Basilicata, in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture wine production area in mountainous southern Italy.

Our weekly feature is their Starsa, made from 100% Aglianico. This wine tells a story – you discover a red that is guarded and strongly characterized by its extinct volcano; Monte Vulture (1326 meters, extinguished thousands of years ago), which with its slopes gently caressing and nourishing the 15 hectares of the company’s vineyards. Surrounded by seven hills and its two volcanic lakes, this place is rather magical when you see it.

Resplendent in its earthy notes (graphite and leather) that briefly sees Slovenian oak, this offers a bright ruby color, vibrant fruits (cranberries, pomegranate) and a briny, unami finish. Try with wild game pasta, pecorino or Taleggio. A marvelous wine to start the weekly special for the year!
