@Peter Sultan 😊 Thank you!!
Aglianico is IMO indeed a quite difficult cepage to understand and consequently love. I guess the good ones are just too few and also i reckon it is quite a hard task to pick the perfect moment, when the wine is at peak. We, in Italy, call the wines made from this varietal Barolo of the South for some reasons(see tannin and complexity) and ageing is a very important part of the process too.
However after you have a 1928 Taurasi which blows your mind away you can only search for more and wait for the next illumination 🙏 doesn't happen with all the grape varietal, does it?

Pepe Nero Primitivo di Manduria 2018

This is a dark wine, in color, aroma and taste. The nose is extremely savory, with tar paving the way for anise, blackberry and currant. The freshness is amazing, with a lively acidity and firm tannins. Pair it with game if you've got it, Bolognese if you don't. It's actually so good you may not even think to have food with it. — 2 months ago

SuperLuna Etna Contrada Pino Red Blend

So this was served to us at El Molino Central in Sonoma, on a sun drenched evening when I was digging into fish tacos at the picnic table, and it absolutely hit the spot. Effervescent- like a rose vinho verde — a month ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2017

Первый нос - дуб и ваниль, потом аромат закрылся. Когда раздышалось - мощные красные ягоды, вишня. Кислотность яркая, танины сначала мягкие, потом кусачие и иссушающие. Вкус земля, гранат, специи. Хорошее сбалансированное вино, под красное мясо. — 3 months ago

Riserva Primitivo di Manduria 2016

This dark wine has a fruity nose of blackberry and plum, but there are some more savory notes as well. Black pepper, cigar box and black olive also come through. On the palate, licorice and plums are in the forefront of one of the fruitier flavor profiles I have tasted in Apulian Primitivos. The 16% alcohol is not as overpowering as I imagined it would be. The tannins are fairly forceful and the acidity is refreshing. This wine drinks really well and will pair nicely with a marbled rib eye steak. — 2 months ago
