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.
