Molettieri Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce 2010
|Region||Italy, Campania, Taurasi|
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.
