Antica Hirpinia Taurasi 2010

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  542126

Aglianicos from Taurasi are famously ageable, but though they can be quite tannic when young, they can be approached early. In some circles, Taurasi is referred to as the Barolo of the south - high praise indeed, but the wines more than hold their own in this comparison. This one is loaded with plum, black cherry, red fruit, tobacco and oak spice with smooth, high-toned tannins. A real food wine. Try it with grilled sausages or barbecued lamb.
