"Giallo d'Arles" Greco di Tufo DOCG 2021

Incredible Greco! Starts with really heavy florals and dried stone fruit. The body and viscosity is so smooth that you can’t believe it’s a white wine. It would benefit so much from age as the long and gentle oxidation with start bringing out more honey and candied fruit. Stellar — 10 days ago

Via del Campo Irpinia Falanghina

Outstanding acidity for the grape. Leads with lemon and florals, slightly under like tropical fruit takes the background. Lots of intensity and freshness but a lot of acid structure leads to a long finish. Possibly the best expression of Falanghina I’ve ever had — 10 days ago

Via del Campo Falanghina 2018

Pale yellow in colour. Aromas of pear and white flowers. Same pear notes on the medium weight palate with a saline mineral note and M plus acidity. Full in the mouth but remaining lively and fresh. Drink now to 2024 I think. I don’t have great experience with the grape Falanghina from Campania on the west coast of Italy as when we went there around 5 years ago we tasted mainly Fiano with the whites in Campania. I decided to have my 2nd and last bottle 28 weeks later on 22nd July 2022. Just as delicious and unctuous as previous. This time ripe grapefruit (refreshing acid cut) with honeysuckle and pear on the palate - an absolute mouthful of flavour from this full bodied white wine. Must buy again. — 7 months ago

@Bob McDonald@Jamie Lauder hello there, just to add my point of view on Quintodecimo, coming from a person that has worked long year in the Italian wine market.
They definitely are an important reality in Campania, quite unique cause they produce big white wines with grapes that generally talking are more known to be giving fairly medium(Fiano) to light body(falanghina) ones.
Their reputation in Italy is of a winery that winks at the American market rather that to the local and i am not saying they do wrong, but they are quite peculiar and when on a Italian table they hardly match the local cuisine. They are indeed as
@Jamie Lauder puts it a party in your mouth(i love it), but a little too oaky sometime for my palate as @Bob McDonaldhas surely learned from my reviews. As far as the reds i don't recall i am afraid.
Happy new year to you both and excuse the intrusion🙏🙏
