La Sibilla

Campi Flegrei Piedirosso 2018

Ungrafted vines & lower alcohol levels allow you to enjoy the cherry and spicy cinnamon hints. The acidity brings a unique freshness while the tannins are subtle. This a very versatile table wine in pairing with salmon, pork tenderloin, pizza and great just to enjoy on its own. — 3 months ago

Feudi di San Gregorio

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Red Blend 2019

There is a bit of funk there, along with garrigue, Provence herbs, anise, blackberry and other black forrest fruits. Interesting nose. The palate is very well designed with a perfect balance between a strong acid drive and a nice red forest fruits note, a good width and a smooth mouthfeel, a bit of dynamic, fresh twist, playful yet edgy tannins in an ever evolving palate before a powerful finish with fruits, spices and those herbs. This is very good! — a month ago

Quinta do Vesuvio (Symington)

Vintage Porto Port Blend 1990

This seems sweeter and younger than the excellent 1990 Vesuvio from last night, the spirit is really separated at this point (after an 8-hour decant), will need more aging, love the sweetness, though. — 2 months ago
