Riserva Taurasi Red Blend 2008

Beautiful stuff—elegant and with great subtlety. Maturing with miles to go. Nose is beguiling—softened tannins, rose petals, dusty fruit. Palate is a soft arc—blackberry, minerals, slight tannic finish. Lovely. — 7 days ago

Frizzante Aglianico Rosato

Fizzy aglianico, absolutely killer. Cherry, cooked strawberry, a little smoke and pepper. One of the most fun sparkling reds I’ve had recently. — 20 days ago

Vigna Cinque Querce Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 2006

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

Redimore Irpinia Aglianico 2017

I still scratch my head about the low Delectable scores. Yes, it’s all rounded edges, black plum and blackberries, but rather effortlessly in balance.it’s easy to drink and thus was an official greeter to our new neighbors,& a beautiful sunset — 14 hours ago

Villa Diamante

Vigna della Congregazione Campania Fiano 2012

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

Radici Taurasi Aglianico 2008

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
