Villa Raiano Fiano Di Avellino DOCG 2016: Aromatic. Fresh. Dry. Medium acidity. Medium finish. Great minerality with evolving flavors of lemon, lime, apple & pear. Very drinkable and perfect with seafood. Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 2 days ago
2021 winter. A big wine, and frankly 15.5% is usually enough to give me pause. However, this doesn’t really fee out of balance - the structure of aglianico does its thing. I don’t get the raisiny notes or residual sweetness that put me off of recent bottles of Bea’s Pagliaro, another pinnacle example of a great regional variety that I loved for a long time. — 14 days ago
What a beaut. Orange herb. Awesome pair to Tartine kale Caesar tonight. Try side by side with Ageno and Viola next time — 18 days ago

Welcome home , Jeffrey.
So happy it was an issue with your dishwasher and not an issue with Neal. — 10 days ago
2021/4/21-24 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Pours a yellow gold. This was wonderful on day 1, with lots of bitter almond, beeswax and stone fruit. On subsequent days it felt a little blowsy - perhaps this bottle at this age didn’t need the extra air. — 14 days ago
2021/4/21-22 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Rich with black cherry, iron and spice, but a nice backbone of acid keeping this fresh and tannin giving structure. I am always suspicious of native Italian varieties that see barriques, but it wasn’t intrusive here - whether due to a deft touch, time or both. — 14 days ago
