Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce Riserva 2009
A well-knit, full-bodied version, offering dense, creamy tannins and a streak of tarry mineral underscoring the expressive flavors of black licorice, baked currant and singed orange peel, with a touch of eucalyptus. Pure and focused, with a lasting finish. Drink now through 2029.
Salvatore Molettieri is the Giant of Aglianico di Montemarano. His Aglianico boasts a robust flavor, unknown today to the great Irpinia wines, but which allows his Taurasi a long life and, even after many years, shows a character that few wines possess. A character that immediately refers to Salvatore, the determined winemaker with his feet and heart firmly rooted in his territory; Montemarano.
