Intense ruby red colour. Intense and complex nose, with spicy black pepper and nutmeg notes and elegant balsamic nuances that blend with ripe plum, liquorice and coffee notes. In the mouth this wine is warm, fat, opulent, but also extremely fresh and sapid, with tightly knit tannins. A long finish of ripe fruit and of torrefaction. A wine of great character to be matched with game and with great seasoned cheese.
Pure anise and black cherry flavors ring out in this dense, full-bodied red, tightly meshed with firm tannins and accented by hints of leather, graphite, dried thyme and smoky mineral. This is delicious now but should open beautifully with some age. Best from 2023 through 2030. 1,250 cases made.
The 2010 Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce opens to a nuanced and delicate bouquet with evident floral notes. The bouquet shows pressed rose, candied fruit, dried apricot, orange zest and freshly tilled earth. There is a touch of fragrant herb and church incense as well. In all, this is a very perfumed expression of Aglianico.
