Winemaker's Notes

A deep ruby red color, a blooming aroma of ample ripe cherries, sweet spices, plum, tobacco, pepper, tar. Supple and silky on the palate, with concentrated texture mellowed into body richness and ripeness. Sweet and fine tannins, long fruity, spiced and toasty finish. Excellent cellaring potential, with bottle age, adding to the wine's complexity.

All roast and braised meats, game, wild boar, ragout, beef fillet, rib-eye steaks, grilled lamb chop, game, spicy dishes, mushrooms, truffles and mature cheeses such as seasoned provolone, parmigiano or gorgonzola pair beautifully with this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Taurasi Pago dei Fusi is a huge, explosive wine. It possesses superb delineation of aromas and flavors to match its dark, brooding personality. Sweet balsamic notes develop in the glass, adding further complexity as the wine gradually builds towards a powerful close. The 2005 doesn't appear to quite have the finesse of the 2004, but it comes very close. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Terredora Di Paolo is one of the leading estates in Campania. This is a superb set of releases, with many excellent choices at all price ranges. Unfortunately I was not able to taste the 2009 Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso or the 2005 Taurasi Campore, as the estate thought those wines needed further bottle age."
94 Points

"A grippy, mountain red, displaying firm wild berry, spice, flint and underbrush notes tightly wound with medium tannins framing the detailed, minerally finish. Drink now through 2018. 300 cases imported."
