Montevetrano di Silvia Imparato 2015

Opened several hours prior to dinner; likely not enough time. The nose is inimitably Italian with some indescribable dark fruits trying to peer past the earth and tobacco for which this wine has both in huge abundance. On the palate, the fruit is restrained and again, loads of earth, herbs and tobacco. The structure is a bit imposing at this point but certainly enjoyable. I’ll just be patient with my remaining two bottles. — 7 days ago

Kami Brut Nature Greco di Tufo

Nose is lovely. Almost warm. Complex

Plate has great fruit. Nicely mineral.

Needs a 45 minute decant. Then gets caramelly. Awesome. Delicious. But you really need to let it sit. It’s just a pleasant glugger on pop and pour.

Bought from fass selections

Fontan Avecchia

Falanghina del Sannio

A pleasant surprise. Light to medium bodied, with some lemony citrus and nutty flavors. Soft finish. Acidity and minerality all good. Really enjoyed it with pasta e ceci ( even though half way through making it I realized i had no chickpeas and substituted cannelloni beans. ) — 21 days ago

Na Vino Bianco 2019

Give this a couple of hours to open up! Notes of white peach, sage, jasmine tea, white flowers. Tannins are there! A delicate beauty. — 6 days ago

Terredora di Paolo

Pago dei Fusi Taurasi Aglianico

Vintage 2010 | from Aglianico grapes. Lots of character, complex but stubborn as well. Barnyard smell, liquorice and steamed red summerfruit. Tannins. It is an interesting wine, for sure, and gains some friendliness with aeration. But it does not get me. Aged in old wood, I guess. | Paired with rib eye on day 1 and an onionpie on day 2. — 2 days ago

I have drunk more disappointing Aglianicos than just about any other highly-touted varietal. So many are tannic and bitter. Seems like winemakers are challenged to get extraction right with this grape.

Fattoria Galardi

Terra di Lavoro Roccamonfina Aglianico Piedirosso 2005

Volcanic nose. Dark fruit. Big structure, dense and full. Adequate acid. Tannins are smooth. Long finish. This bottle reflects the grape blend and could never be mistaken for R bank Bordeaux as some have said. Definitely geeky. — 18 days ago
