Three lovely wines showing great typicality made even more interesting by using local grape varieties. Tasting notes taken at the time from four bloggers…
Mustilli Spumante: “a lemon and mandarin thing going on here… a mineral apple thing” – Julie Pegg
Mustilli Falangina Sant Agata Dei Goti 2010 : “a decent nose -a little touch of honey… a little peel… citrus” – Bill Eyer
“Very fresh, citrus, and floral tasting. Would taste great with seafood” – Mary Cressler
“There’s a definite aroma of perfumed talc… old lady’s perfumed talc” – David Lowe
Mustilli Cesco di Nece Aglianico 2007 : “really impressed with the nose, fruit forward, rich, jammy fruit lots of raspberries. Very approachable. Medium to full bodied, a little dryness on the after taste. Tannins as expected. Really nice.” – Melba Allen
The tasting was preceded by an exploratory wander through the estates ancient cellar – mold covered walls, racked vintages snuggly aging, and oak barrels maturing the latest vintages.
