Giuseppe Calabrese

Pollino Terre Di Cosenza Magliocco

Light color, with dry flower petals, red fruits on the nose. Really good balance, fine tannins. Really enjoyed the wine. Kinda similar to Sangiovese. — 11 days ago


Hobo Magliocco 2018

Only produced in magnums
Absolutely delicious
A bit fizzy that stays and enhances the mineral aspect
There are red fruits and spices plus a bonus decoration of herbs
Super smooth even though quite vertical
Very long

Dissidente Vino Rosso 2019

Red from the Mt.Pollino tasting i organised.
We are again in Calabria
Fabio callls himself an anarchist, but in saying that he just emphasises the fact that he knows the good way from the bad way of doing things without someone telling him what and how to do it. It's about taking responsibilities.
The company is a cooperative which does wine and figs mainly and the follow a bit of synergistic agriculture and permaculture.
He has complete respect for the land and the whole idea of give and take from Earth.
The wine is 100% guarnaccino nero he says and here starts a big argument with the Chiaromonte producer i know, but definitely the vines are old here, from 1974. Here Fabio says Guarnaccino nero is a harder version of magliocco as a plant and the wine has a deeper colour.
However the bottles i opened last night had a huge volatile to start with, barnyard was the scent, someone said hay, someone animal, i reckon it was all at once. But it did blow off after long time and the mouth was super good and long.
So i would say that this must need a big decanting of hours and it will be another story.
I will definitely give it a second chance
Mouth was better than the Toccomagliocco

Il Rosso 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Il Rosso, a co-fermented blend of Gaglioppo and Magliocco, punches well above its weight. Dusty roses, blackberries and cedar form it’s spicy bouquet. Pure yet youthfully tense, it displays cherry-berry fruits and juicy acidity, finishing with a vivid cranberry core. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023) — 8 months ago
