Taurasi is produced in the commune of Taurasi. 15-20 year old vines are grown at between 1,000 – 1,600 ft above sea level with southern and southwestern exposures. The soil is deep and originally from ash and fallen pumice. The surface and deep layers are silty sand.
Full bodied and rich red wine with a plump midpalate and balancing structure to the black fruit and spice flavours. It finishes dry and assertive with lingering vanilla oak flavours.
