Ariavecchia Greco di Tufo 2019

Very mineral & tightly wound; searing acid refracted through stone. Lemon & florals. Still very enjoyable at this stage but will divulge more as it unfurls. Great stuff. — 10 days ago

Vigna Cinque Querce Taurasi Aglianico 2013

Last wine of our 3 weeks in Southern Italy!!!! A fantastic wine with dark cherry, dark plum, leather, cedar, and spice. Very smooth with the tannins just right. An absolutely beautiful wine and a great price point. — 11 days ago

"Giallo d'Arles" Greco di Tufo DOCG 2021

Incredible Greco! Starts with really heavy florals and dried stone fruit. The body and viscosity is so smooth that you can’t believe it’s a white wine. It would benefit so much from age as the long and gentle oxidation with start bringing out more honey and candied fruit. Stellar — 7 days ago

Cantina del Taburno

Beneventano Amineo Coda di Volpe

Very closed on night one, on night two it’s got delicate and very pure orchard fruit on the nose, along with fresh straw, and lots of cracked stones. Very crisp and minerally in the mouth, with some weight and really nice acids. Reminds me a little of good Muscadet, with a tad more weight but minus the quinine. — 9 days ago

Via del Campo Irpinia Falanghina

Outstanding acidity for the grape. Leads with lemon and florals, slightly under like tropical fruit takes the background. Lots of intensity and freshness but a lot of acid structure leads to a long finish. Possibly the best expression of Falanghina I’ve ever had — 7 days ago

Mastroberardino

Nova Serra Greco di Tufo 2020

Excellent Greco, so austere and mineral. No fruit, just clean Greco flavor with very dry, stone-like flavor and finishing with a crisp acidity. Greco is not my favorite grape, but this wine is a great example. This wine goes well with creamy pasta. — 9 days ago
