"The 1999 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine cranks up the intensity level by many notches with its potent, penetrating raspberry and blackberry nose, mineral and tarry, and a packed, weighty, super-solid palate whose tannins are just beginning to unwind and bring out the underlying velvet of their texture. The wine is beginning to be approachable, but I would suggest drinking it between 2006 and 2020."
"This takes no prisoners..."
