97-pt. Italian Classic Has Landed!! Under $60!
"This is a magical wine from Southern Italy." -- JS Indeed!! I popped one open at 8AM to make sure...it's ALL THAT!! And what a price!
As I noted a few days ago, when containers arrive from Europe, we go a bit mad around here. As soon as that metal seal on the door of the reefer truck is cut and the guys start bringing in the pallets, we get all giddy with our pocketknives as we cut into the plastic wrap and boxes to start sampling everything.
Here's the word for this wine. Well, three. BLOCKBUSTER. VIGOROUS. HEAD-SPINNING...!! A masterful wine from Campania that combines incredible strength and power while also being mind-blowingly complex and layered. Every time you whiff or sip it, it is giving you something different -- black plums, licorice, smoke, cherry liqueur, truffles, leather, mineral, sweet red candy, tobacco....just wild levels of flavor and a beautiful, elegant, classy structure. Can only get better and better over the next decade or more....please don't miss it!!!
