Vigna Cicogna Greco di Tufo 2019

9.2

Don’t see it as often as I’d like, but I almost always pick up a Greco and always enjoy it! Florals florals florals, fresh garden, wet stones, orchard fruit - quite complex and this is best at cellar temp. Silky sensuous on palate, gorgeous body w/nice heft & balanced integrated acidity. Really strutted thru finish. Would like to revisit in 5 yrs — 16 days ago

Calleri Vineyard Negrette 2013

Dark with a slightest of rusty-brown edge on the deep maroon center. Hint of funk. Cooked plum fruits and fresh herbal stuff. Flavors are very ‘winey’. Apple- black berry baked dessert with a hint of chocolate mint. Tannins are tongue dry. This has some character. Fleshy. Rustic. Fun. Not sure what the standard for Negrette is, but this is an interesting bottle of unfamiliar wine. — 2 months ago

Terra d'Uva Greco di Tufo 1860

Initial impressions were light on palate and heavy on minerality. I thought it was warm/ripe like Greece, but felt like loire sauv Blanc. Turns out it was Italian. First time having this grape. — 3 months ago
