2012 Terredora Taurasi DOCG
Aglianico is one of the grand grapes of Italy and Taurasi is the best of Agliancio. It gets buried by better know pals, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. Aglianico makes bold, explosively fruity wines with excellent depth and texture. We'd reach for one over a regular Chianti any day.
Owned by Walter Mastroberardino and his children Paolo and Daniela. Paolo handles the winemaking and Daniela much else.
Intense ruby colour with garnet reflections, pronounced complex nose with hints of black cherry, spicy scents of violet and tobacco, as well as, tar and mineral notes. Full-bodied, elegant, smooth, velvety and intense on the palate, with balanced tannins and aromatic intensity. Excellent cellaring potential, with bottle age adding to the wine’s complexity.
