Winemaker's Notes:

100% Aglianico Intense ruby red in color, with a full, complex and persistent bouquet of violet, berries and chocolate. Naturalis Historia Taurasi has an enveloping warmth, smooth and perfectly structured with a characteristic background of plum, bitter cherry, raspberry and strawberry jam. This wine pairs excellently with game and sophisticated meat courses, as well as highlyflavored, mature cheeses.

About Mastroberardino:

Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery, established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino. Pietro was awarded the professional title of 'Mastro' as testament to his skills in quality winemaking, a tradition that has continued uninterrupted for ten generations and one that still continues today. Located in the town of Altripalda, in the ancient region of Irpinia, this family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of this region: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe. Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the ancient winemaking heritage of Campania.
