Farella Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Fresh blackberries, tobacco and dried sage. Not overripe. Nice restraint on this. From the cooler sub-AVA of coombsville — 23 days ago

Mofete Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Nerello Cappuccio 2016

A little mean at first, but with air this gets friendlier. Nose develops very floral, delicate red berry fruit, with loads of slightly smoky, flinty cracked stone minerality. Lean and intense, but light in weight. Its flavors definitely highlight bitter minerally notes over fruit. Nice acidity and a long, mineral finish. Demanding on its own, it was really nice with a meat-heavy pizza.

UPDATE: Night 2, the bitterness has receded and been replaced by more fruit. It’s still lean and athletic, but more balanced. That development over the course of 24 hours suggests this will improve over the next few years. Upping score from 9.0 to 9.1.

Bianco di Sei Etna White Blend 2015

This wine grew on me. So much more mineral versus acid driven, which took me a bit to warm to. But this is really interesting and really does taste like smoky stones (in a good way). Very easy to drink. — 4 years ago

Another great cab from Di Costanzo. I get more mineral and less fruit in this one than the Farella. Almost like an Italian-style wine. — 2 months ago

2016, 95 pts Wine Advocate. A pretty classic cab but at the price point probably prefer Di Costanzo. — 4 months ago

Di Co Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon DI CO is a very pretty, delicate wine. Aging has really given the 2018 an extra level of polish I did not see in the barrel sample last year, especially in its contours. Inky dark blue/purplish fruit, sage, mint and lavender add expressive layers of aromatic nuance. This is an impressive wine, especially in its peer group. Readers who want to drink the 2018 young should give it a good bit of air first. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)
