Calafe

Greco di Tufo 2015

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has cold honey, delicate white flowers, moist sand, green melon and fresh hay.
Palate has green melon, lime zest, lemon juice (light), dilute honey and green table grapes.
Loving this nose, more expressive than most of my prior Greco do Tufo experiences, but this also has less bottle age than I generally drink this varietal.

Although we did see the Maine giraffe (moose) on our drive out Saturday morning, only about 1/4 mile from the cabin.

Vignarosa Red Blend

Local find in a small market. This is a rosato, regardless of how it is defined above. Nice acidity, not too sweet. Was excellent for a beach picnic. — 12 days ago

Had this at Il Posto Accanto in NYC and I’ve been trying to find it ever since. It is one of my favorite whites I’ve had. — 6 days ago

Fiano di Avellino 2016

Fantastic value from B-21 at $20. Just got back from Campania, and had so many phenomenal whites. This brings me back. Complex yet easy drinking. Drinking well now, not sure how long this will age. Excellent with fresh snapper and cilantro lime gremolata. Overall, a great representation of the Fiano grape variety from the most renowned winery in Campania. — 3 days ago

"Giallo d'Arles" Greco di Tufo DOCG 2018

Almond, citrus peel, salt brine on the nose. Clear, clean, and and lively in the mouth.—My immediate insight is vibrant life...the wine moves effortlessly over the palate and leaves a spectacular finish of fifteen seconds. I love southern Italian whites! — 24 days ago
