Taurasi

Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita /// Rosso
Taurasi

Announced by a rich, deep red, the wine opens to a rich, multi-layered bouquet of black liquorice and red and black berry fruit, lifted by scents of violets, segueing into a broad-volumed, austere palate, whose complexity is enhanced by expressive, well-integrated tannins. This is an elegant, long-lived wine.
