9.1

Drank 3/13/19. Excellent pairing with grilled lamb chops.

A big, dark brooding wine. Plenty if dark fruit, soil, tar, and firm, well integrated tannins. See my earlier tasting notes.

4/21/8/4/4 +50 =91 pts.

A great value Southern Italian at around $20.

Excellent forward flavor. Nice but not overwhelming hints of fruit but easy drinking big red classic Italian wine. Great with beef. 2013 vintage — 19 days ago

Aglianico del Vulture 2012

This volcanic wine took a while to open up. The tar matches the inky black color. Chewy tannins carry the wine to a long finish. Fantastic wine from a severely under appreciated and under exporter region. — 17 days ago

Not as inky as other Aglianico we’ve had (that’s a good thing). Not a lot of acid, medium tannins, some ballpoint pen, smoke, charcoal, tobacco. black pepper, plum & stewed fruits. From Flatiron Wines, NY Times 2019 20 under $20 list. — 18 days ago

Piano di Montevergine Taurasi Aglianico 1999

PnP, the nose is quite special, massive oaky characters, savory notes, dirt. The palate has very sweet and well integrated tannin. Strong cassis nose and palate. The finish is intense and long. Very good first impression. Definitely buy again. As it evolves in the glass, chocolate and mineral come out. Juicy black cherry flavors dominate. Love it. — 17 days ago
