Terredora di Paolo Taurasi 2014

Tasting Notes

Aromas include baking spice, leather and freshly turned earth.  On the palate, this fuller-bodied wine offers dense, dark fruit flavors supported by savory earthy/meaty notes and more cigar spice lingering on the complex finish.

From the producer : The community of Taurasi is the center of the production of the Aglianico- based red wine of the same name. With ancient origins, this wine has great body and structure, it is dry and austere, with an aromatic vein. The Aglianico grape, of Greek origins, is a speciality of Campania and Basilicata. With its high tannins, acidity and structure is a promise of long life. For this reason the Taurasi is called the “Barolo from the South”. The name “Fatica contadina” honors the “hard work of the farmers”.
