Value Varietals/ Earthy, feral scents of animal and underbrush mix with ethereal notes of rosewater, exotic spices and dried cherries. It's a gorgeous combination, at once delicate and chewy, the sort of wine that could show off handmade pasta with cinghiale ragu.
Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine 1995 - 93 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... is simply beautiful. Dried cherries, truffles, plums, spices, tobacco and licorice come to life in this exquisite, mid-weight Piano di Montevergine. Silky tannins frame an elegant, sublime finish. This is a fabulous Taurasi that shows the heights Aglianico can reach. The 1995 is a marvelously complex yet subtle Taurasi... Feudi di San Gregorio is one of the leading estates in Campania and Italy. Enzo Ercolino and the Capaldo family spared no expenses in snapping up vineyards and building a state of the art facility that cranks out more than 4 million bottles per year. Along the way Feudi garnered considerable accolades from the press… Today Feudi is owned and run by the Capaldo family, although Ercolino retains a minority interest. The estate makes a wide range of whites and reds… Since 2006 Feudi has moved most of its winemaking in house and relied less on outside consultants.
Taurasi Riserva DOCG Piano di Montevergine 2002 - Wine Spectator / Cocoa-accented wild berry and cassis notes are framed with ripe tannins, as hints of pine, licorice and maduro tobacco fill the minerally finish.
Taurasi Riserva DOCG Piano di Montevergine 2004 - 93 points, Wine Spectator/ This powerful red remains graceful, with bright acidity driving the ripe kirsch, macerated blackberry, vanilla, wild herb and licorice notes. Silky tannins frame all of this, but the fruit and spice notes linger on the long finish.
