92 Our Score (12/2017) This is the kind of wine that completely wins over the Vin Chicago tasting team. A perfect combination of density, complexity and elegance, the Elena Fucci Aglianico is the whole package. Black currant and black cherry fruit flavors are complemented by volcanic earth tones, spices, herbs and juicy acidity on the finish. This is a true wine of place.
92+ Vinous, Ian D'Agata (4/2017) "Bright purple-ruby. A strong balsamic note complements the dark plum, black cherry and sweet spice aromas and flavors. Lively and juicy; a fresh mineral tang lifts and focuses the steely, mineral fruit flavors and extends them on the bright, floral-accented finish. Outstanding wine that showcases just how wrong it is to extrapolate about vintages in too general a manner. Yes, the 2014 vintage was a very rainy one in Italy, and many red wines are forgettable; however, the rainy weather was not as much of a problem on the Vulture, where the late harvest means that even copious summer rain is fairly inoffensive (on the Vulture, the veraison, or color change, of the grapes doesn't even start until September)."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue. We are 200 feet to the west of Ulta Cosmetics and around 200 yards southeast of the Hollywood Palms Cinema. The layout of the center is a bit confusing so just give us a call if you need directions.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
