Simply superb. Can't believe the price. - Balanced earth/fruit. A really awesome dry red. Ten years of age and this one is singing right now. Beautiful aroma. Not oaky due to stainless aging. Dark fruit (warm climate ripeness), earthy with a touch of dark fruit sweetness toward the finish. This wine has it all if you like old world earthiness, dark fruit and lack of oak/vanilla flavors. You really get a good sense of the terroir on this one. Low to moderate tannins. Best red value in years, maybe ever. Drinks much more expensively than an $11 wine.

Copertino, 2009 - My first bottle of Copertino was a 1997 vintage. It was outstanding! At the time, the negromaro grape was new to me. Subsequent vintages that I tried went from good to excellent to good...I'm a firm believer in aeration. This 2009 came out of the bottle a little "tight." The longer it was exposed to air, the more it opened up, the better it tasted. It can't compare to those vintages from the '90s, in my opinion, but it is very drinkable and goes well with red sauce dishes. I will order it again, but I'd love to try another vintage.

Tastes like it is corked - The first bottle I poured out, the cork was crumbling so I thought it went bad. The next bottle was just as awful, really a terrible wine, I stil have 2 more bottles that I have no idea what to do with because they are undrinkable.
