Snagged this one after the wine buyer at my local shop said it had an odd “barnyard funk.” And it does, in the best way. I was excited by the herbaceous nose, and very happy with the wet clay and wood taste. There’s a complexity with slight yeast notes, and a nice balance of medium tannins. I drank it on the third day after opening and loved the additional prune and dried fruit notes that I got. I imagine this would age well.

Wow this is delicious. Cherry on the nose at first and then opens up a bit funky and earthy. Rich and succulent fruit and tabbaco w good tannin and acidity.

New DOC for me. Copertino Riserva: 95% Negromaro, 5% Malavasia Negra. Easter pizza wine for a geo bachelor. Brick color indicative of the age. Nose of black fruit, violets, menthol and casis. Still a little hot and a little tannic. Stewed plums, leather and potpourri on the palate. Good value but dominated by secondary aromas and flavors.

Has this earth/ funk taste, dark fruit and tons of leather in the nose. Great to create a contraste pair with 3 milk and aged cheeses.

Wow. Funky is definitely a way to describe it. When I first opened smelled strongly of...cow dung. Couldn't get away from that smell even when I left it open for a few days. Not something I enjoyed
