Puer Apuliae Castel del Monte Nero di Troia Rieserva 2016

Lyle Fass
9.6

This is easily the greatest wine I’ve had from Apuglia. Stunning floral aromas. Amazing sugar inflected purple fruits that are so complex and inviting that the nose is like a warm hug from an old friend. Stunning breadth and detail in the aroma. 9.7 or 9.8 nose. This is my 2nd bottle and it’s just brilliant. Deep nose. What a combo of spicey/floral and purple fruits. Palate is just a joy. Structured and deep. Classically structured like an elite Bordeaux. Incense on the nose as well now just noticed. The tannins here are just stunning. Sweet, velvety and substantial. Amazing length and just enough finesse to get this to 9.6. This is a stupid good wine. 2nd bottles with consistent notes. — a day ago

Castel Giocondo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Sangiovese 1995

Recent acquisition from my Italy trip. Excellent Brunello - typical licorice, cedar and black cherry notes I love in this style of wine with the body and acidity to bring it all together. Damn I wish I had more of these. — 11 days ago

Areio e Vento e Amor Evangelho Vineyard Red Blend 2018

Grown up Hawaiian Punch in fruit profile and drinkability, but also a fine wine. Silky and aromatic (those sandy sandy soils!) A red you can have with fish according to my mother. — 22 days ago
