Falanghina del Sannio 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Falanghina del Sannio aims to please with ripe apples, pears and sweet white smoke. It’s silky in feel mixing ripe orchard fruits with saline-minerality and a buzz of lime-infused acidity. This remains wonderfully energetic throughout and finishes crisp with a twang of sour citrus. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2021) — 2 days ago

Donnachiara

Taurasi Aglianico 2017

Dark, blackish purple. Inviting nose of tarry blackberry. Full-bodied palate gives that same blackberry with ripe blueberry, and a hint of birch ash on the moderately long finish. Fine, medium plus tannins and medium acidity. Aglianico is my new go-to Italian variety and Taurasi is the King. Old World presence with a slight New World feel. The slight step down from the Riserva makes for a great value in a premium appellation. Pizza — originally from the same region — is a natural pair, but take this anywhere you’d take a Bordeaux or a New World Syrah or Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2027. — 5 days ago

Terredora di Paolo

Terre di Dora Fiano di Avellino 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2019 Fiano Terre di Dora impresses with dried flowers, incense and almond paste complemented by peach and mango notes. Silky contours usher in mineral-tinged white stone fruits, zesty green citrus and exotic spice. While gorgeous already, the 2019 offers good near-potential. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2021) — 9 days ago

Cantina del Taburno

Cesco Dell' Eremo Beneventano IGT Falanghina

This wine ages beautifully with a warm burnish atop straw and florals, and over-ripe white and yellow peach. Gorgeous, enveloping. — a month ago

Feudi di San Gregorio

Serpico Irpinia Aglianico 2005

Sophisticated and very appealing bouquet full of earthy notes, tar, leather, mulberry, black cherry and medicinal herbs. Despite the age (16 years old, not sure how to translate that to human age), it is so much alive, well structured and balanced, long fruitful aftertaste with notes of licorice and chocolate. More experienced folks say this wine has good potential and I can't help myself but to dream about future of this wine.
