Taurasi, Avellino

Vigna Quattro Confini Aglianico 2016

I often prefer a younger Aglianico to Taurasi. This is a great example. Food friendly and fresh, but not lacking complexity. — 10 days ago

I want to open one of my older Taurasi when you’re over. I’ve liked them a lot.

Deep, dark ruby coloration. On the nose, cocoa powder, spice, prune and cherry. On the palate, medium to full body, cherry, strawberry, leather, chocolate and a long finish dominated by chocolate notes. Still exhibiting strong tannins. — a month ago

Pietracupa

Fiano di Avellino 2017

Lime zest, mint, and a little guava/lychee on the nose. Starts out all flint and grapefruit in the mouth then broadens into something richer and more mouth-coating. A note of chamomile too. Beautiful, I would love to see how this ages.

Update: Enjoyed this over 4 days and though there was no big surprise to the evolution, it settled into itself and provided so much joy. For all around enjoyment to the dollar, this can’t be beat. Deserves an upping from 9.2 to 9.3

Vino della Stella Marca Propia Fiano di Avellino 2017

Serious Fiano example. Some time on the skins. Almost too much structure, but balanced by refreshing acidity. Went down fast! Other vintages of this have shown more ashy flavors; this is more herbal. — 20 days ago

Fatica Contadina Taurasi Aglianico

Kingly. It always surprises me with these kinds of wines that aren’t a fruit bomb. So much red earth and acidity on this. — 23 days ago

Feudi di San Gregorio

Piano di Montevergine Taurasi Aglianico 2010

Cigar tobacco, roasted herbs, and plummy dark fruit. Tannins are kept in check with the ripe fruit character. Don’t know why I have been gun shy about Taurasi. Amazing. — a month ago

Fiano di Avellino DOCG Fiano 2017

What a delicious, minerally, saline, smoky, textured white. I tend to quite like Fiano and this is a good one. Definitely on the longer finish / more contemplative side. Perfect wine for sitting down and plotting a future trip to Southern Italy. — 23 days ago
