Cilento Aglianico 2012

Rubber and coffee grounds at first, but it’s just some primary funk blowing off. Then sappy with tamarind, nice texture and sweetness. Intriguing, and increasingly delicious. — 9 days ago

Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2020

Tasted with marvelous branzino with fresh herb and tomato “spring caponata,” this wine was an ideal embodiment in a glass of the “macchia,” the Italian version of the Rhône’s “garrigue.” Bright pear, apple, lemon and yellow plum with an underlying steely minerality and wonderful sensations of hay and salt air-tinged brush. Surprisingly juicy but also lean, it’s an ideal wine for fish — a month ago

Cavagino Colli di Luni Vermentino

The 2018 Colli di Luni Vermentino Cavagino from Cantine Lunae Bosoni appears golden yellow. A more complex Vermentino, compared to the Etichetta Nera and Etichetta Grigio from this producer. The wine is rich, with tropical fruits, ripe pear, melon, some honey and minerality towards the end. — a month ago
