An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, with supple tannins framing the rich range of plumped cherry, black licorice, bay leaf and espresso notes. Fresh and well-knit, offers a tang of minerality on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2027. 600 cases made, 300 cases imported.

The 2017 Taurasi is dark and moody in the glass, with masses of ripe cherries and plums complemented by sweet herbal tones and hints of clove. It's silky and polished on the palate, with a wave of black fruits encased in a web of minerals and spice that seem to slowly unfurl toward the close. This dramatic display is followed up by a youthfully structured finale, with wild berries and violet florals lingering long. There's some beautiful Aglianico fruit hiding beneath the oak used on this wine; however, unfortunately, I don't see it ever coming to the fore. That said, there is still a good amount of pleasure to be found here for fans of the style.
