Taurasi Aglianico 2009

9.4

This wine is so fine and so refined. Nose of tar, deep blackberry fruit, loads of intense graphite minerality. Palate is ungodly juicy, so pure and fresh, with clearly defined fruit and perfectly ripe tannins. So fresh and so pure. Delightfully long finish with incredible graphite minerality and even a hint of slate. So pure. Truly a great wine. — 25 days ago

At 11 years thought this’d be ready - still young. Delicious rich dark fruit and leather, dark chocolate, nice tannins. Has at least another 10-15 years. Wish I had more... — a month ago

Satyricon Irpinia Campi Taurasini DOC Aglianico 2016

Plum sorrel leather wood smell, the taste is a wet, acidic tannin mass of plum, blackberry, that grips and dries the mouth by the end, slightly astringent but rich fruit is great — 21 days ago

Naturalis Historia Taurasi Aglianico 2007

17.5/20 (93/100) Развитый, комплексный букет ароматов табака, ежевики, шоколада и нотой вяленых бананов. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, бархатистыми, немного шероховатыми танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе. Отлично! — 18 days ago

Vigna Cinque Querce Riserva Taurasi Aglianico 2007

16/20 (89/100) В аромате много тонов кожи, чёрных ягод, шоколада, ликерный тон. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, шершавыми танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе. Очень хорошо, но не хватает фруктов и специй. — 18 days ago

Kami Brut Nature Greco di Tufo

Nose has washed lemon peel, cold bread dough, granite chips and fresh cut grass.

Palate has green apple flesh, lemon zest, light nutty notes, granite dust and a faint, savory green herbs note.

Fun stuff, our first time with a sparkling Greco di Tufo. Made Method Champenoise using fruit from the 2009 vintage. Not overly complex but a solid bottle to begin the evening.

Poliphemo Taurasi DOCG Aglianico 2011

Aglianico from the “prince of Taurasi” presents itself dark as the night. Still very young, shows dark fruit, smoke, crushed rock, flint and dark/bitter cacao. Full bodied, gripping tannins and with good acidity and a very long finish. It gained weight with time. Tecce is known for adding nothing (and subtracting nothing) to the wine and his vineyards are 80+ years old. It is a big but balanced wine that I enjoyed but I think will improve with age. — 20 days ago

Got that big bold round Aglianico punch, but still years to go before it’s primed and ready — 21 days ago

There’s no lying down with this wine. It’s a great finisher and palate cleanser. Delicate, gentle and floral. — 13 days ago
