Quartara Giffoni Valle Piana Colli di Salerno Fiano 2018

Crazy nose. Hints of dried apricots. Yellow flowers. Rich. Deep.

Palate is stunning. Elegantly rich. Dried apricots. Mineral. Saturating. Salty a bit. Silky. Hints of honey. Some glycerol.

Long finish.

Really a unique wine. Almost hints of very good sherry notes but in a good way.

This is a wine you want a case of in the cellar.

Rosso Marea Aglianico 2011

Wow. Nose of licorice and spice. Lovely balanced fruity licoricey aglianico. Juicy. Crazy lingering licorice finish. Amazing for their second red. ... terrific sweet licorice fruit going on ... delicious. ... a lovely Grippiness. ... a hint of chocolate. — 5 years ago

Costacielo Giffoni Valle Piana Aglianico Rosato 2017

@delectable lunarossa rosato costacielo I want to love this. Great fruit. Some acidity. Balanced. It lacks some oomph/vibrancy. A little acidity and a blast of minerality. Needs energy on the palate. It’s tasty but lacks the vibrancy I want in a rose. A very good value but not the rockstar its brethren are. ... a bizarre rose. Getting some candied lemon peel internal aromatics. Some savoriness. If I ignore the fact that it’s a rose I like it better. There must be something profound in that statement. ... ok. So after an hour I’m getting some licorice. Some lovely bitterness It tastes almost like rose made from aglianico ... which is what is it. Lovely nose. A field of blackberry flowers with white pepper. Forget every complaint. This is really good after an hour. A rose that needs a decant. Or even some age. Bizarre. Almost like a rose made in burgundy from aglianico. Yes. I’m aware that makes no sense. ... now some grippy acidity on the finish. So elegant on the palate. Juicy. Crushed flowers. Wow. — 5 years ago

Alas sold out. We’ll try the 18 and sell that if it’s as good.


Borgomastro Colli di Salerno Aglianico 2012

Lyle Fass

Classic nose. Huge tar, dark black cherry and black berry, gorgeous rusty tin, earthy and very mineral. Super aromatic. Wow. What finesse and elegance. Superb power and concentration but such a light footed wine for Aglianico. So juicy and elegant with amazing purity and sap. Lovely. Big cherry and dark berry on the palate with refinement and ripe and plentiful tannins. — 5 years ago
