Campania Falanghina

What a beauty, love me some Falanghina: ripe nectarine, white peach - really floral, almonds, lanolin some tart yellow apple & pineapple. Silky smooth, w/seamlessly integrated acidic backbone - infinitely drinkable! Bump for $14 price tag — 5 days ago

Taurasi Aglianico 2016

This wine is medium-dark in the glass and offers up a perfumed nose of red fruit, sweet oak spice, smoke and hint of spearmint. The palate is just as delightful, with cherries, raspberries and red currant flavors joining together. The tannins are sweet, while the finish is medium length and savory. It was great with an Italian sub sandwich and also a hit with arancini and fennel-laced meatballs. — 12 days ago

9.0

Love this stuff tho it varies from vintage to vintage. With some age, this strutted plenty of tertiary notes of minerals, licorice, smoke, Earth, leather & black pepper. Red & black fruit profile was ripe & tangy. Smooth w/decent finish. Just barely pulling itself above the rustic category. — 18 days ago

Ariavecchia Greco di Tufo 2007

2007


Fairly intense greco aromatics. More so than other vintages. Starts to blow off with air. Lemon flowers. Lemon oil. The Greco aspect becomes a beautiful integrated element.

As it aerates more like this lemon flower perfume of the gods.

Palate is lovely Almost honeyed a bit. Mineral. Lemony. Lemon essence. Lemon mountain stream. Very clean and elegant.

As this opens elegant richness. Almost a meursaulty finish. As it opens like rich delicious mountain stream. Some apricot in the background.

It’s almost hilarious what a dedicated team can do when quality is the only thing that matters. This is world class wine.

Bought from fass selections.

Vento Greco 2015

Insanely good Greco. Aromatic, spicy, rich, saline, mineral-laden . . . This has just about everything going on. I’m giving an extra point simply because it’s dirt cheap. — 11 days ago

Rosaenovae Irpinia Aglianico Rosé 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Rosaenovae is a beautiful example of Aglianico Rosato. It’s silky and pliant, with notes of ripe apricot and tropical fruits giving way to a buzz of zesty acids and minerals, all lifted by peppery florals and spice, then tapering off with admirable length and an almondy richness. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021) — 17 days ago

Aglianico Campania

Earthy red and black berry and cedar. Heady aromatics that follow through with soft tannins and balanced acidity. There is a warm noir that lingers across the bright fruit tones.. — 2 days ago
