Made from Aglianico grape from Taurasi region, medium Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits, floral and pepper spice. On the palate flavors of blueberry and plum, herbs, licorice and black pepper notes. Full ripe tannins, lively acidity, long elegant finish ending with fruit and spice. — a day ago

2018 opened December 2021. The 15% Merlot mellows out the edginess of the 70% Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and the 15% Garnacha (Grenache) grapes.￼ Even though all these grapes are also grown in France, this wine has a distinctive Spanish twist to it. It has the body of a Rioja, without the tightly wound tannins that are common to Spanish reds. Mint, lavender, and cherries on the nose. Cherries and cassis on the front. Medium tannic structure, with a refreshing coolness on the mid palate. It finishes with a bouquet of high notes — flint, smoke, and sour cherry. Long finish with a slightly discordant sourness at the end. If it didn’t zing me at the end I would’ve given it a 9.2.￼ — a month ago
An Amarone I can get behind. Not as massive as many. Despite its 11 years, the nose shows beautiful fruit, rich but not too pruney. Secondary notes of mahogany and leather. In the mouth, it’s got loads of port-like flavor in a full but not blowsey way. Ends long and dry. Still got some tannin, but it’s soft and well integrated. Nice job. — 12 days ago
The 2020 Dissonance is gorgeous in the way it marries textural richness and energy. A dollop of Sémillon added to the Sauvignon Blanc works so well in adding mid-palate creaminess, orchard fruit, spice and jasmine. The 2020 is beautifully done, and a real delight to taste today. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2022) — 7 days ago

Packs a punch for the price point. Blackberry, tobacco and coffee. — 12 days ago
Decanted for 20-30 minutes before drinking. Significantly smoothed out the tannins and made for a very pleasurable drink. Served with bone-in rib eye recipe from Wine Spectator. Oh so good. — a month ago
31st of 204 1l bottles.
They are extremely hands off with the wines
They say whatever the wines is like is not their fault😄😄
The wine is lovely, a little carbonic sticks with the mass for now, an unusual crown cork that makes the bottle even more rustic.
You can't tell the grapes neither the vintage from the label
Being in the South of Calabria you would aspect a tough and big wine to digest, but nothing could be farther from the truth
On the other hand when drinking you realise why the bottle is a litre rather than the conventional 3/4 of it
Crunchy red fruit, spices, smooth tannin and that mineral note that distinguish it. Long too
Such a good find, i was recommended by the owner of the Enoteca Les Vignerons in Trastevere, Rome who is a great expert on natural wines and this bottle gives him extra points in that direction.
