The Barolo of the south, more or less. One of the better Taurasis I've tried. Mouthful of old world acidity and tannin balanced by wonderful new world earthiness and fruit.

Dark berries, woodsy earth, smooth tannins and just right acidity. Enjoyed it immensely.

In 10 years, this wine is going to be ridiculous. Great now already.

Gorgeous dark spice on the nose with a vanilla bark wrap. Deep draughts are richly rewarded and heighten anticipation of the old world earthiness balanced with new world dark fruit and spices. Evident tannins belie the soft dark smooth finish. Everything we love in an Italian wine. Rich, earthy, elegant not fussy. We had the 2008 vintage.
