Brilliant ruby red with garnet reflections, fragrant perfumes of maraschino cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg.
The taste is full and balanced with soft and sweet tannins that confer a good aromatic persistence.

Score 91 (2011) The 2011 Taurasi is a surprise hit that defies the stereotypes of the vintage. The 2011 summer was a very hot one with dry winds from Africa. But this wine from the heart of Taurasi shows a great sense of fullness and ripeness that is never heavy or flat. The wine appears elegant and well integrated with ripe fruit tones of blackberry and Morello cherry that are contrasted against oak spice, tar, crushed mineral and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is supple and rich. You can feel the heat of the year, but it adds positively to the overall softness of the wine.
