Terre del Principe Pallagrello Nero Casavecchia ’12 93 Pts – James Melendez

Full name of wine: Full name of wine:  Terre del Principe Castello del Femmine Pallagrello Nero Casavecchia

Producer: Terre del PrincipeJust when I don’t think I can no longer get excited about wine I know that I am about to be surprised.

I have known about the Pallagrello Nero and Casavecchia grapes I had never found an opportunity to taste wines made from these grapes.  This is an IGT wine which in my opinion is the way to find a great quality wine that is not a DOC or DOCG and recognizes regions and variety.

This is a point of difference wine–a unique signature of varieties that express Campania. This wine can be enjoyed alone or with food but in my opinion this wine is optimized if served with food.

Scent characterization: red plum, pepper, black cherry and cinnamon

Flavour characteristics: black plum, game, cherry, pepper, graphite and Thyme.

I was glad to find this wine in San Francisco and under 20 USD.  I wonder when I will try my next Pallagrello Nero and Casavecchia wine–I hope soon.

¡Salud!

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
