This is not a blend, but 100% Casavecchia. Upon opening, the volcanic smokiness is immediately fragrant, and slightly perfumed. Dark berries, tannins, and minerals woven together. Delicious winter red!🍷 Also 👍 the very graphic designy label ...
Had the rest of the bottle with broiled salmon, cashew olive vinaigrette, wild mushrooms and polenta. It became veeeery mellow on day 2. Even better! — 4 years ago

Deep brooding dark wine, bitter like an Amarone. Dark chocolate and licorice. Smooth finish. Just the right age. A good value and good beef accompaniment. — 10 months ago
50% palagrello nero and 50% casavecchia. This wine dates from before the split of the 2 associates who started this estate (Peppe Mancini founding Terre del Principe). Magnum 2001 vintage. — 5 years ago
Full-bodied. Dark fruits. Earthy. Bold. It's the heavy hitter favorite of the evening! — 6 years ago
15 year old bottle. Hallelujah, I am a believer. The acidic structure long said to be legendary, amongst Aglianico has truly proven itself. Charred wood, pumice, volcanic rock comes through on the nose seriously..
. Bloody bandaid and home maid soy sauce as well....after the oxidative musk blows off, it reveals a florid Gardenia quality on the nose. I've had a few Aglianico expressions before, but never one so old as this... tomato leaf, dried cherry on the palate with so much acidic life on the finish. Incredible. — 6 years ago
Chocolate, spicy, young. Got some rough edges but good value and unusual — 6 years ago
