2007 Azienda Agricola Nugnes Falerno del Massico Caleno Riserva
Continues to be absolutely fantastic, delivers a rich, creamy focused beam of fruit that moves effortlessly over the palate. Sweet raspberry, dark chocolate nose, nearly black in color, flavors of small, dried berries, boysenberry, cranberry, herbs, great acid but still lots of tannins in this beast of a wine. Vacuvin'd the remnants (1/3 - 1/2 left) so we'll see how this shows later but super bullish on this! Shows the power of aglianico/piedirosso with supreme value. Day 2 kind of disappointed me with some dropoff on flavors, but still very impressive.

2006 Massa - Giorgio Primo
Delicious, complete, very Italian, complex, lots of Sangiovese characteristics rounded into fullness with great tannic structure from the cabernet and petit verdot with Merlot adding lush dark fruits. Finish went on and on, might have come in a tad hot but that finish, that finish! Lasted and lasted.

2008 Macchiole - Rosso
This...this has shown its potential, and it was obvious from the moment the cork was removed. Beautiful caramelizing fruit emanating to the nostrils while the eyes behold a rich, purple core with a light rim and fast legs. Flavors of small, crushed berries, leather, the texture is so smooth with a finish that opens up so nicely, lingering for 10-15 seconds. A fantastic food wine for red sauces, cheeses, some fatness (oil or meat). Some spiciness began to emerge, black pepper, some salty air from the nearby ocean. This is the fantastic value it was built to be. Has life ahead indeed, but ready now.

2007 Piazzano - Syrah Toscana Rosso
Incredible nose on pop and pour and 2+ hours later. Throwing sediment (solid patch of it in the shoulder of the bottle)...milk chocolate for sure, little bit of wet stone, nary a rough edge in sight, mouth filling, herbs, meat glide over the palate, really really well made wine....the second glass over 2 hours later was way better than the first. Lots of dried fruit with lots of structure...was a good foil to balsamic vinegar but would have been even better with a steak pizzaolo, or a seasoned pork chop.

2007 Valle Reale - Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto
Big out of the gate with sour cherry notes, lots of herbs, some blood, bright acid loosening tannins. Dark dark purple, would have benefited from some more air, but a solid italian to drink with your dinner, probably even better with pizza/spaghetti instead of gyros.
