Mazzella

Biancolella 2017

I’m not really sure where the 8.8 ratings for this are coming from - maybe a different vintage - but this wine is fantastic. Great aromas of tropical fruits of all things on the nose, along with melon and maybe a hint of candied lemon. Beautiful mouthfeel with a rich, enveloping flavor profile. Definitely a warmer climate Italian white (from Campagna, so obviously I guess), the wine is impeccably balanced through a lingering finish. Another amazing QPR wine from the folks at Le Volpe e l’uva in Firenze! — 9 days ago

Montesole

Taurasi DOCG Aglianico

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат кожи, смолы, ментола и черничного варенья. Довольно тельное и кислотное с аккуратными танинами. Ягодное во вкусе. Не великое, но качественное альянико. Отличное соотношение цена/качество. — 7 days ago

Greco di Tufo DOCG Greco Bianco

I love how Greco is full bodied, yet still has searing acidity and rich minerality. This bottle dials it up just past my preference level. Suuuper tart green apple and lemon, with acid through the roof. Has great chalkiness and savory mineral texture, but the acid is the driving force. I’m happy to have enjoyed this but ideally I’d want a bit more richness to the fruit. Well made none the less. — 10 days ago

Terra di Lavoro Roccamonfina Aglianico Piedirosso 2009

A huuuuge wine, less in body than in the punch it packs - tannins are large and in charge but they are nicely integrated into the green olive, peppery finish. The nose is loaded with smoked meat and sweet BBQ. Decanting is a must here and I really enjoyed how it developed over the night. By the end, I was tasting a Christmas spiced plum jam! — 3 days ago

Vesevo

Taurasi Aglianico 2012

30+ minute decant. Dark purple color. A lovely nose that is killing me because I can’t describe it. It’s sweet with fruit, brown sugar, and caramel. Reminds me of two things but can’t make the connection. Fairly reserved on the palate compared to the deep nose. Hints of spice and OH. Medium finish. Not bad! — 12 days ago

Memini Irpinia Aglianico 2013

Black cherry, smoke, black pepper, crushed rocks. Sturdy, polished tannins with palate-coating black fruit and savory dried herbs. Well worth seeking out for the bargain hunters. Irpinia is such an underrated DOC that deserves greater recognition. — 13 days ago

Colli di Salerno Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Clear and clean, medium intensity in color, ruby. Toasted vanilla, nutty nose, perhaps cedar. Even as I take notes, it's changing. Coconut, cedar, pine/mint with blackberries in the background. Medium plus bodied, Medium plus tannins . Medium minus acidity. I love this wine. There's a tremendous complexity to it. I know I'm missing a lot and as I said it's changing. This is my second bottle--its consistent. Perfect wine for pairing with any beef or tomato centric dish. Really enjoyable!!!
