Nose has washed lemon peel, cold bread dough, granite chips and fresh cut grass.
Palate has green apple flesh, lemon zest, light nutty notes, granite dust and a faint, savory green herbs note.
Fun stuff, our first time with a sparkling Greco di Tufo. Made Method Champenoise using fruit from the 2009 vintage. Not overly complex but a solid bottle to begin the evening. — 2 days ago
This was the big surprise out of the Italians we pulled out of the cellar. Big and rich and plush with plenty of black fruit and a touch of vanilla with a long complex finish. Stunner! — 15 days ago
Crisp and bright, mineral and full bodied. — 9 days ago
This wine is so fine and so refined. Nose of tar, deep blackberry fruit, loads of intense graphite minerality. Palate is ungodly juicy, so pure and fresh, with clearly defined fruit and perfectly ripe tannins. So fresh and so pure. Delightfully long finish with incredible graphite minerality and even a hint of slate. So pure. Truly a great wine. — 7 days ago
Plum sorrel leather wood smell, the taste is a wet, acidic tannin mass of plum, blackberry, that grips and dries the mouth by the end, slightly astringent but rich fruit is great — 3 days ago
At 11 years thought this’d be ready - still young. Delicious rich dark fruit and leather, dark chocolate, nice tannins. Has at least another 10-15 years. Wish I had more... — 16 days ago
Aglianico from the “prince of Taurasi” presents itself dark as the night. Still very young, shows dark fruit, smoke, crushed rock, flint and dark/bitter cacao. Full bodied, gripping tannins and with good acidity and a very long finish. It gained weight with time. Tecce is known for adding nothing (and subtracting nothing) to the wine and his vineyards are 80+ years old. It is a big but balanced wine that I enjoyed but I think will improve with age. — 2 days ago
Got that big bold round Aglianico punch, but still years to go before it’s primed and ready — 3 days ago
Lush, fruity and delightful with swordfish in tomato broth. — 12 days ago
