I like their Reds and this Sauvignon was a first – crisp and clean.

Di Camillo, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, 2012

Nappy Nose and indescribably poor, stale, dull, aged liquid. Straight dowwn the sink.

From the 2016 pot luck case – even’s own tasting notes say this wine should be drunk fresh

The Di Camillo family would be appalled to know that this vintage is currently representing their Winery in Ireland.

Thomond Reserve, Sauvignon Blanc, 2009

More stock dumping by in their recent pot luck sale.

A 7 year old Signature Sauvignon Blanc, signed by some Munster Legends. I wonder if they knew what they were signing.

Like Munster Rugby, this wine has past it’s best. Hopefully Johan Erasmus’ recent appointment will restore Munster’s reputation, sadly it won’t help this stale liquid that tastes as if it was made from grapes grown on the Fields of Athenry.

Vouvray, 2011, Monmousseau

Memories of Sussey Street from the Eighties when Vouvray was last fashionable. Flabby with a hint of liquorice, quite sweet.

Another so so from the pot luck sale.

I guess we should be drinking this fresher rather than 5 years later.
