Riserva Cilento Aglianico 2012

@delectable cilento aglianico riserva

Nose is blueberry spice and blackberry. Elegant. Very integrated. Deep. A subtle richness. A hint of old school well made California cab. Very deep. Sensual. Some porcini. A ray of lilac shining through a window.

Palate is so elegant in fitting with the house style. Just pumps juiciness. Elegant blackberries. So silky. So juicy. A hint of spice but it’s more in the background. Some blackberry licorice. Maximally delicious. I can’t believe this is Aglianico. Wow. Stunning.

Finish has this palate coating freeze dried blackberry thing. So juicy and long. Like the flavors somehow self replicate.

On day 2 elegant plum flower on the nose. Really pretty.

@delectable Vini Marino fiano. Vendemmia tardiva

On open nose is a bit earthy. Mineral. A pleasant hint of porcini.

Palate has great tropical fruit. Very mineral. Great mouthfeel. Just feels luxurious. Really caresses the palate. Almost like a very good meursault. Delicious. A hint of unctuous was but in a good way. Just a kiss of an echo of honey tang that balances it out. Some lovely saltiness.

With 2+ hours of decanting it is starting to show its elegance. Happy to embrace that but it’s sure a long wait. — 15 days ago

Proclamo Cilento Aglianico

@delectable proclamo cilento aglianico

Needs 30 minutes to open. Totally meh before that.

Nose is fresh blueberry juice. Earth. Savory. Hint of licorice. Panoply of spices. Black peppercorn. A hint of clove. Licorice flowers. A lovely balance between dark Aglianico and perfume. Incredibly expansive aromatics.

An hour in nose becomes psychotic. So cliche I know but Aglianico in burgundy. Deep crushed Violets. Some lilac. So sensual. High end perfume.

Palate is spice. Delicious blueberries. Silky texture. Blueberry blueberry flower. Blueberry licorice. Much more volnay like than typical Aglianico. Much lighter and more feminine. Perfect plate cling. So juicy. So elegant. The Most Burgundian aglianico I’ve had.

Finish is so Elegant. Blueberry perfume.

Absolutely delightful Cos. The wine is a loving example of elegance. Layers of complexity and an ethereal weight. Wonderfully fresh. Balances a hearty beef stew beautifully. Love it. — 8 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2018

Bold, fresh cherry with a touch of undergrowth, exotic spice and a whiff of kirsch. Fresh & juicy with purity of fruit and great balance plus the interesting edges around. The 15% alc is impeccably integrated. Youthful but still delicious.
Great value, too.

Villero Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

This bottle was also part of the really fun ensemble of Barolos, generously shared and curated by our friend Tim.

Again, served blind after a lengthy slow-ox and we knew we were drinking Barolo but that’s it. No obvious signs of age. On the nose, bright red fruits, herbs, dead flowers and tar...but was all knees and elbows, even with all of the air it was given. Abundant structure. This had to be a classic case of yet to be realized potential.

The shroud was pulled and...I’ll be damned, a 2008 Brovia “Villero”. I’m sort of surprised how much of an infant this wine seemed to be. I have little doubt these will age gracefully for decades to come.

Valpolicella Superiore 2015

Baby amarone with incredible freshness and elegance—winemaker cut his teeth at quintarelli so no surprise. Nose has ripe red cherries and a floral / herbal sensibility, flavors carry through to the palate with amazing concentration but not heavy or syrupy at all, with accents of licorice and cinnamon. 14.5% abv without a trace of heat. A joke at sub-$30 — 7 days ago

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2017

Clean and sturdy. Golden apples, big naval oranges, yellow peaches, minty green basil. All of age in amphora.

Weighty, viscous, balanced. A lesson in Trebbiano - instructive, precise, soft textured. I wish it had a longer leash. Let’s get groovy.
