Ischia Biancolella 2018

Quite an enjoyable wine with more presence than I first gave it credit for - better on day 2. Lots of citrus / lemon, good minerality, some salinity. Refreshing with a lot of acid for sure, but more balanced than a true “acid bomb”. Long-ish finish and medium body. — a month ago

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso

Really nice bang for the buck. First time trying a Piedirosso grape, and it was very pleasant, easy drinking. Could pair with both low and high falutin cuisines. — 3 months ago

Le Lune del Vesuvio

Muscari Piedirosso Aglianico 2015

Bone dry. Extracts of cigar incorporated with tart cherry. Soft but very present tannins combined with excellent acidity give it a smacking lingering finish. Opens up fully after an hour. — 9 days ago

Pale gold, dry, mineral. Hints of citrus and white peach. Family owned, managed with time honored tradition. Another Oliver McCrumb selection that is perfect with any seafood pairing or just chilling with a special person on the front porch. — 3 months ago

This was great with vegetarian lasagna. At first, I was worried that it was going to be a little funky, but that blew off after being open for a bit. — 4 months ago

Probably my single favorite wine discovery of the last decade is the island of Ischia. Mineral driven, with vibrant floral and citrus notes, it transports you directly to the Mediterranean. — 3 months ago
