Satyricon Irpinia Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2019

Nose - wet peat moss and fall leaves. Main tasting notes - cranberry and pomegranate with a medium to heavy body. A long dry tannic finish. Treating ourselves to this rare bottle on vacation. — 2 months ago

ION Irpinia Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2016

My second favourite Stefania...

Does this have more protons, or electrons?

It’s good. Really good.

It’s missing something though. Could be more time in the cellar.

Eremo San Quirico Irpinia Campi Taurasini DOC Aglianico

Quite similar to the Bicento, where this Eremo is also made from 200-years old vines, and the wine being robust, intense, and pitch dark. The striking difference is however the richness of the fruit and the smoothness. Very pleasant indeed! — 8 months ago

Irpinia Campi Taurasini Cretarossa Aglianico 2013

Delectable Wine
9.1

Dark and smoky, the 2013 Cretarossa shows ashen stone, blackberries, sage, underbrush and a spritz of tangerine. It’s silky in texture yet lifted and elegant, with a wave of black fruits coasting along a saline core of acids and minerals. Energy remains high throughout the grippy tannins. $25.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, November 2021) — 10 months ago

Bicento Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2013

This is a full-bodied & concentrated 100% Aglianico from Campania, Italy. The vineyards are understood to be 200-years old in Campi Taurasini, hence the name of the wine ‘Bicento’ (twice hundred). This makes them the oldest in Europe. The wine is robust, intense, pitch dark with firm, dusty tannins. The finish is very good, with dark berry, black plum, licorice, & spice flavours — 8 months ago

Re‘na Vota Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2010

This is a fine Aglianico that is honest and well-crafted but not for the faint of heart. Intensely gamey cured meat aromas dominate the profile up front followed by tar, licorice, fennel, smoke and violets. Mid palate is supple and silken, suggesting flavors of dried currants and peppermint candy. The finish brings a decidedly dry and ferrous minerality that screams for animal flesh, so I strongly suggest you heed that most primal call. Showing very strong concentration and firm tannic grip at nearly age 10. Seems to drink more gracefully in Burgundy glasses, and still has some maturing to do. An outstanding value and will delight the senses of those who appreciate Italian rusticity and classic food pairings from the South (THIS guy). — 3 years ago
