100% #parraleta #grape from #Bodegas Sers of #Somontano Hand harvested and aged in American Oak. Parraleta is an #indigenous grape from this region and is very challenging. Bright acidity and rustic #tannins this is one of the best examples. Excellent aging capacity. — 3 years ago

Orion Rossi Vineyard Red Blend 2002

Well made #wine but just a bit big for me at this juncture of my drinking preferences. Generously fruity, with soft #tannins but somewhat lacking in #acidity & savouriness. Would have gone gaga over with my palate of 8 years ago! — 4 years ago

Titolo Aglianico del Vulture Aglianico

Smoke and a resinous grape with dried violet and red-black roses. There is a meaty interplay evocative of Cuban sandwiches that simultaneously points at red opium. The floral expression is so seductive! Dry entry that springs from roots in a youthful bitterness, with tannins across the ceiling. Burnt, black currant and darkest toast notes, but with a springy black lime citrus-ness acing like capillaries throughout. Shroud and thundercloud. You smack your lips, and you are literally painting with tannins and charcoal, on the dental portico of your Basilicata basilica, which is dusted with volcanic ash. Spectacular! #aglianico #AglianicoDelVulture #Titolo #ElenaFucci #DOC #basilicata #tannins #volcanic #tanninbooth #Barile #italianwines #italianred — a year ago

Domaine Viret

Saint-Maurice-sur-Eygues Emergence Red Rhone Blend

Deep #ruby red color, medium #viscosity, nose #screaming #spices (black pepper) and concentrated prunes, darks fruits, sharpness in between. Palate is powerful, rich, #silky textures balanced with soft #tannins. Full bodied, darks perfectly ripe fruits (blackberry, prunes...), medium #acidity. Can sleep for few more years but great today. #Emergence is very structured wine. Always loved #domaine de #viret one of the first wineries i tasted in the beginning of my career #cosmoculture #vinnaturel #photography by #oumydiaw — 4 years ago

Tasted over several hours and the #tannins never felt right. too gritty, sandy & drying. wonder if this will relax with a bit more cellar time...? — 4 years ago

#donati is always pretty #solidsipper I agree with everyone in that the #tannins on this #cabernetsauvignon are very smooth and sweet which makes his wine versatile either to sip and enjoy on its own or with a meal. Paired very well with tri-tip and rice with sour cream and roasted green peppers with a Monterey Jack au gratin. — 3 years ago

Excellent aged #caberbet characteristics, with #cigarbox #cedar, & #pencilshavings on nose with a palate of supple, yet grippy #tannins over a lengthy finish. Great deal at US $25 — 4 years ago

Nude Campania Aglianico 2006

Outstanding #aglianico #wine from #irpinia still young and perfect at same time. Light, but strong, round and #tannic. #Tannins are very elegant. It's an inspiring journey through this fabulous #grape from south of #Italy — 5 years ago
