I've had Casavecchia a few other times and this one recalls Aglianico more than the others did. Black pepper and leather notes. Quite tannic now but very drinkable.

Alois Casavecchia with Massimo Alois himself! Beautiful, hard to grow, hard to make finicky wine. Great alternative to cabernet!

Apparently Casavecchia is an ancient, forgotten variety. Loaded spicy, lava/earthy action. Huge structure. Reminds me of great Aglianico

Old school rustic Italian, quite dark fruited, salty. Medium body. Very tannic on the back end, very structured wine. Substantial acid. Needs a couple hours of air to come together and show properly. Pair with 🍝 for a pretty pretty good time. // turns into something special on day 2

Bright fruit driven by volcanic udertones. Good structure with the classic Italian acidity. Nearly extinct, a true treat for any fan of obscure wine, a can't miss, if you see it - drink it!

Dark purple garnet in color, notes of nail polish, cedar, tobacco, and earth, fine tannin, full body with a long and complex finish, beautiful wine.

Rich texture with dry, earthy taste. Almost reminiscent of raw milk. Better with more age.
