Primum Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 2010

Very rustic, and defines the old school old world wines! Need more time and still too young. Blueberry, BlackBerry, plum, smoke, charcoal, violet, and dried herbs. Lip smacking tannins. Love these! I only wish I had more of these. — 11 days ago

Ariavecchia Greco di Tufo 2007

Minerals that burn your nose. This is what pears and nuts do when they age together and are coated in creme fraiche. Big lemons, pith and fresh juice. It keeps tasting like it’ll get to the bitter point but instead it turns into spice. It tastes like blue cheese all along the tongue. Tons of umami. Love that volcanic smokiness, like good fiano gets too. Does Campanian wine get any better than this? Some oaky sweet spices like vanilla and white pepper and black pepper. Like the spice in the finish. Long finish. It’s big and delicious. I wish I had more stashed away. Where is it, @Lyle Fass ? — 20 days ago

Damn it, I moved this one into off-site storage... I'll check it in a few years.

@Chris Shultz long gone. We sold 08 and next up is 13 I think. Or we sold 13. Not sure.

Terra d'Uva Greco di Tufo 1860

I became obsessed with Greco di Tufo while living in Napoli last summer. A bottle was almost a nightly occurrence for my work buddies and I while there. I was thrilled to find this bottle a couple of months ago at City Wine Merchant in Buffalo, NY. It isn’t my favorite bottle of Greco, but it is excellent on a warm evening. — 2 months ago
