Winemaker's Notes

"The 2004 Taurasi Cinque Querce, an impenetrable dark ruby, is simply awesome. Despite its massive, imposing style, it is remarkably delineated and nuanced. A multitude of exotic smoke, ash, violet, mint spices, licorice and dark fruit develop in the glass as this stunning Taurasi struts its stuff in a stunning display of character. This is top-flight Aglianico at its very finest. I can only imagine what the Riserva might be like. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029."
