Quiet the exceptional wine from central Italy. Cocoa powder, tar, pencil lead, lavender and cherries. Decant for an hour plus before enjoying.

Big and forward, but with lots of mineral and drive. Dark chocolate, woodsy carob. Blueberry, raisin, amaro.

Perhaps my favorite red wine produced in the contiguous south of Italy. This vintage is all over the place with camphor, creosote, tar, tobacco. I have to meet these people this year. I have an amazing story about this wine. Nic and Diane, do you remember the amazing "sleep under a bridge meal"?

Plum, beets, camphor, & tobacco nose. Nice depth of flavor. More tobacco notes on palate. Great acidity! Will like to see how this develops.

Crazy young. First tasted 2011 last year at Vinitaly. Seeming to track like 2009.

Plan B! Nice bottle, although took it probably 30 minutes to kind of blow off a lil bit of funk. Poured with a slight violet hue. The initial notes are floral, black cherry, clove, sweet tobacco and herb. The clove note blows off the bottle and replaced with a little more tobacco. Entry predominantly black cherry, sweet tobacco, and herbs. The middle of the wine has a bit of a green touch to it. The finish of this wine was a bit more acidic than I thought. Nice wine, and glad I have more back vintages as this 11 is a TOUCH young.

This wine is from Campania - a blend of Aglianico and Piedirosso. First time I have this blend - I'm amazed by the structure and complexity. This wine is deep purple, lead pencil, tobacco, black cherries, and integrated tannins. Definitely has all the right ingredients to age nicely.
