    Default [TN] '10 La Sibilla Falanghina

    With Jean and Andrew away visiting her family, I was left to my own
    devices. Tonight, that meant a dinner of linguine with shrimp in a
    spicy red sauce. With that, I drank:

    2010 Campi Flegrei "La Sibilla" Falanghina
    nose: floral with an herbaceous element, minerals
    palate: brisk acidity, seashells, light body

    Such a contrast with an '09 Taburno Falaghina I had last year, this
    wine, imported by Oliver McCrum, is a refreshing version of the grape
    (per Oliver, it's grown on a volcanic outflow near Naples, very special
    terroir).

    Not had the La Sibilla, but imported by Oliver McCrum is always a good sign! Though of course he is mostly West Coast.

    Yes, this bottle I picked up when in California last week. It doesn't
    hurt that Oliver brought a bottle of the '08 La Sibilla to a dinner in
    Oakland 3-4 years ago -- hand selling at its best!
