Winemaker's Notes

100% Aglianico

Intense ruby color with garnet reflections, pronounced and complex bouquet with hints of cherry, fruits of the forest, spicy scents of violet and tobacco and a suggestion of minerals. Elegant, smooth, velvety and intense it displays characteristic hints of plums, black cherries, black pepper and tar. It is full bodied and austere on the palate with balanced tannins and acidity. It will continue to age and develop for more than a decade. It is an excellent accompaniment for roast meat, game, spicy dishes, truffles and mature cheeses such as seasoned provolone, parmesan or gorgonzola.

Critical Acclaim

"Readers who want to know why Taurasi is often called the 'Barolo of the South' need to taste Terredora's 2004 Taurasi. This dark, powerful wine draws the taster in with an array of dark fruit, herbs, tar, smoke and anise, all of which come together on a classic, firm frame. There is fabulous clarity and depth in the glass. The wine is elegant, rich and persistent, but never heavy. In short, all of the elements are present for the 2004 Taurasi to develop into a splendid wine in the coming years. The Taurasi is aged for 18 months in small French oak barrels followed by a further 18 months in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029."
94 Points

"Deep ruby. Red cherry, vanilla and sweet spices on the captivating nose, along with a complicating note of flinty oak. Rich, broad and full, offering sexy, lush red and dark berry flavors and a repeating note of vanilla. The tangy red cherry finish lingers with good clarity and spicy persistence. I like this huge wine's light touch and fine-grained personality, not to mention its lovely floral lift. This excellent example of Taurasi should age another 15 to 20 years without any problem."

Wow. Great complexity and concentration. Not what i expected from an algianico. a few years of age has calmed the hard as nails structure i usually associate with this grape. it reminds me of a very good nebbiolo, but with a little new french oak to give it a bit of a bordeaux feel.
