Radici Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 2011

Chad was able to save the waiter from obliterating the crumbling cork. Beautiful garnet color with long legs. Heavy scents of bright cherry and leather. Sleek and lithe with well dry tannins. Cherry, tobacco, with a bit of astringency on the finish. 2011 Vintage — 5 days ago

Feudi di San Gregorio

Taurasi Aglianico 2010

Patience rewarded with this bottle - lovely dark floral aromas, figs, blackberries, ripe red cherry (Sangiovese-like), balsamic, oregano, dark chocolate, smoked meat, oiled leather, scorched earth. Tannins are integrated and are in balance with fruit and acid on the palate. Lovely, complex bottle, enjoyed with Alex’s porchetta. — 23 days ago

Piano del Cerro Aglianico del Vulture 2013

Black cherries, delicate smokey flavours and smooth tea like tannins. This was a nice surprise, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Softened even further on day two with some fragrant mixed spice added to the profile. — 17 days ago

Classic nose. Huge tar, dark black cherry and black berry, gorgeous rusty tin, earthy and very mineral. Super aromatic. Wow. What finesse and elegance. Superb power and concentration but such a light footed wine for Aglianico. So juicy and elegant with amazing purity and sap. Lovely. Big cherry and dark berry on the palate with refinement and ripe and plentiful tannins. — 19 days ago

Deep dark delicious Aglianico from Avellino. Red fruit, chewy, but with a bitter bite at the end.

Vigna Cinque Querce Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 1999

Big wine, lots of earth, tar, leather, pipe tobacco and balsamic and spice, and lots of blackberry. Such a full and potent wine. I wanted to drink the aromas. Roses and other flowers. A real romp in the forest. It was ready to come home. — 17 days ago

The 99 is alive and well. I wish I had another in five years. Luckily they’re kicking around.
