Borgomastro Colli di Salerno Aglianico 2015

9.3

One of the most elegant Aglianicos out there. Gorgeous nose. Black fruits, tar, spice, almost like good oil, huge minerals, very deep aromas, penetrating but elegant and almost cooling. Palate is ripe, juicy, sauve and deep with super velvety tannins and such purity. Terrific freshness. Such energy and acids. Awesome inner mouth perfumes. Fruit is all black and very tarry and super long. Terrific structure ensures a very long life. — 4 months ago

Quartara Giffoni Valle Piana Colli di Salerno Fiano 2014

Amazing. Rich. Dense. Contained stone fruits. Juicy.

Rides the line between over the top and amazing. The acidity holds it together. Sort of an Italian version of a top Rhône white

No wonder you didn’t answer me. You had your fucking wine shipped 5 weeks ago and lied to me and said it wasn’t shipped and me and you get our wine shipped last. What a fucking liar.

Costacielo Giffoni Valle Piana Aglianico Rosato 2017

@delectable lunarossa rosato costacielo I want to love this. Great fruit. Some acidity. Balanced. It lacks some oomph/vibrancy. A little acidity and a blast of minerality. Needs energy on the palate. It’s tasty but lacks the vibrancy I want in a rose. A very good value but not the rockstar its brethren are. ... a bizarre rose. Getting some candied lemon peel internal aromatics. Some savoriness. If I ignore the fact that it’s a rose I like it better. There must be something profound in that statement. ... ok. So after an hour I’m getting some licorice. Some lovely bitterness It tastes almost like rose made from aglianico ... which is what is it. Lovely nose. A field of blackberry flowers with white pepper. Forget every complaint. This is really good after an hour. A rose that needs a decant. Or even some age. Bizarre. Almost like a rose made in burgundy from aglianico. Yes. I’m aware that makes no sense. ... now some grippy acidity on the finish. So elegant on the palate. Juicy. Crushed flowers. Wow. — 2 years ago
