Salvatore Molettieri 2011 Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce, Campania
Taurasi is a small wine region in Campania known for producing cellar worthy, powerful wines from the Aglianico grape. Salvatore Molettierri produces some of the most age worthy styles of this powerful wine. This Taurasi is deep with dark plum and black cherry fruits with plenty of earth, leather, coffee, tobacco and spices. The extra age has mellowed the tannins and brought out more of the tertiary, savory flavors.
