Montevetrano di Silvia Imparato 2015

Three glasses that are a humble reminder that the drinker plays a role. Glass 1 is heavily aerated and I had a bite of spinach 2-3 bites ago, shows thin, harsh tannins and is borderline undrinkable. Glass 2 is not aerated, shows toasty wood, dark fruit, cassis, like a modern super-campanian well made but without too much tipicity. Glass 3 finally reveals some Aglianico character: muscular, herbal, earthy with the slightest touch of barnyard brett and a mint-tarragon finish signaling ripe pyrozines. Tannins are slightly more approachable now, best of the three. Short-lived bottle and still not a fan of the cab elements, but undeniably well made — 10 days ago

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.

Riserva Cilento Aglianico 2008

Really a mind expanding wine. Would never have guessed Aglianico or 2008 or 15%. Quite herby and earthy but with some core of fruit too - long finish with good acid. Lovely mouthfeel as well. And a great pairing with Marcella Hazan’s long cooked bolognese. — 2 months ago

Tenuta San Francesco

É Iss Tintore Prephilloxera

They say the vines are 150-300 years old ungrafted ones untouched by phylloxera. I don’t remember having this grape before. What’s in the glass is very tannic, but balanced with nice fruit, floral, and mineral notes. — 4 months ago
