A wine that will divide the crowd
Valter Massa is the king of the timorasso
He has made the history for this grape variety and i was very curious to taste this new( to me) label
Wine needed a little warm up after coming out from the fridge before expressing all its complexity, even the fruit you couldn't taste when too cold
Colour is golden although had no oak ageing
Eventually we find peach and papaya very pronounced(perhaps mango?), but not overripen
Flinty, very mineral, a bit gingery, white pepper, coriander seeds and marvellous length
It might be seeming not too dry for someone, but to me it found a balance and i enjoyed it a lot
Very unusual, you have to be curious — a month ago
Popped and poured. 100% Teraldego from a 5 acre parcel and aged in amphora. At this stage the 2014 “Sgarzon” pours a nearly opaque, garnet color. Let’s be clear, there’s definitely some VA, but there is some absolutely gorgeous pomegranates, tart dark brambles, earth, and stewed plums too. A very pretty wine that reminds me why I am so smitten by Elizabetta‘s wines. For my palate, this is showing better than it did back in 2017. Very Italian…but with some Burgundian sensibilities. But even that isn’t fair. These wines are singular. — 2 months ago
This wine would deserve more reputatuon in my personal opinion.
If you don't know that it ages in clay amphora on the skin for quote a long time, if you don't know that is biodynamic and that altogether there very minimal intervention in the whole process you would just go...WOW!!! It reminds a Chassagne-Montrachet for elegance and balance, a good one i mean
Complexity is there, easy drinking and potential to age. Quite long too. What more do we want? Price for the quality is fair, not cheap, bit not overly expensive(arou d 40euros served in a restaurant) — 2 months ago
Basilicata is a mountainous region in southern Italy, where you’ll find the majestic Mount Vulture, an inactive volcano, which is home to some of Basilicata’s best-known wines made from the Aglianico variety, a dark, thick-skinned variety.
Yet here we have a luscious white wine made with 50% Greco and 50% Fiano varieties offering a concentrated intensity of floral, white blossom, guava, passion fruit, melon, and mango aromas and flavors that will knock your socks off.
This wine is refreshing and easy-drinking. It would be an excellent solo sipper or complementary pairing with a variety of seafood dishes.
Vigneti del Vulture was founded in 2009 with an aim of producing wines from indigenous varieties, made in an internationally-appealing and accessible style. This lovely wine hits the mark.

Dry, citrus, underripe green apple, crisp acidity. Enjoyable but not that complex. Muscadet like. — a month ago
Terre di San Leonardo is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%), and Carmenere (10%), run by the Gonzaga family since its inception in 1724. Wine is fermented with ambient yeasts in concrete tanks and 20% is aged in French oak barrels. Ruby with aromas ripe red fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of rich plum and blackberry with herb, light spice and slight earthy notes. Medium+ finish, fine soft tannins, ending with fruit, floral and earthy mineral character. Tremendous value! — 2 months ago
