Terredora di Paolo Taurasi 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes 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.

Knowing that only through the direct control of all the wine production processes assures global quality which represents the origin of all great wines, in 1994, Terredora decided to valorise directly the grapes by completing its own production cycle. Montefusco was chosen by Walter Mastroberardino, his sons Paolo, Lucio and his daughter Daniela as the area where the wine cellar was to be realised because it was considered to be the ideal centre of gravity of their vines which were dislocated by rays. Montefusco was a village of antique history, once a chief town of the Principato d’Ultra, today corresponds to Irpinia. The modern winery is set in the natural scenario of Serra di Montefusco, at about 650 s.l.m. which interests three production areas D.o.c. and D.o.c.g. wines of Irpinia: the valley of the Sabato river for the Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo, the valley of the Calore river for the Taurasi.

A single vineyard effort. 100% Aglianico. Intense garnet/purple hue. Pronounced aromatics that mingle the earth essence of the volcanic soil with campfire bacon, dark berry compote and exotic spice. Intense and forceful on the palate, it exudes a kaleidoscope of blackberry and forest fruit that is joined by abundant plum, black pepper and bramble. It manifests its power with a bold dose of tannins that is wonderfully integrated into the whole. A poster child for Aglianico that will cellar and develop for years.
