Naturalis Historia Taurasi Aglianico 2015

Pungent, perfumed nose of violets blasted through a chipper shredder with jasmine and magnolia blossoms; a pronounced balsamic dash underlies. Virgin rose petals catch the bouquet. Ripe red grapes undulate in rich soils.
Red cherries blacken on the palate, shedding roll-ups raincoats in a hail of dusty tannins tart and black cassis and currant with resinous dark cigar heads, espresso beans and bergamot coated in dark , bitter chocolate. Sweet teeth to beast freak.

Naturalis Historia Taurasi Aglianico 2007

Very earthy, wet earth, wet leaves, dates, blackberry compote, the tannins are very sultry! Quite a long, savory, tobacco finish. Very nice! #Aglianico #Taurasi #Italianwine #vinoitaliano #vinocongliamici — 8 years ago

Aglianico 2015


I prefer this #Aglianico to many Italian wines I have had. #giornata works with two different clones and this was more like a #Taurasi style and was intense and spicy. — 5 years ago

La Loggia del Cavaliere

Riserva Taurasi Aglianico

Liquid obsidian. Fine pepper and sparkler smoke encircle dense raspberry and sloe reductions with dried, black plum skins, a solid, semi-sweet bakers chocolate cake, madura cigar, flint and smoldering willow plaited sinewously! Medium heavy mouthfeel, green-pointed and obstructively tannic til open, but emerged rippling and pleasant with graphite, vine charcoal, powdered cadmium, raisined red currant and cassis. Rustic Power!! #tenutacavalierpepe #taurasi #Aglianico #Luogosano #SantAngeloallEsca #italianwines #docg — 6 years ago

Beautiful nose. Delicate, complex, sweet, and perfumed. The palate unfortunately did not match up and needs time to relax and come together. #terradoradiapolo #aglianico #taurasi #campania #italy #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Rue 333 Taurasi Aglianico 2011

Full disclosure, I am a big Aglianico fan, so I might be a little biased! The 100% Aglianico grapes for this wine are grown on the hills of Taurasi in Campania at 450 meters above sea level. The fertile soils are rich in minerals and volcanic ash and calcium, giving this wine some of its distinctive character. Pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature, maceration on the skins for 20 days and malolactic fermentation in barrique rounds out vinification. The wine is aged for 3 months in steel and 24 months in French barriques. Sampled after 3 hours in a decanter, this wine has character and an elegant boldness. The nose reveals dark cherry, spice and a little pepper. On the palate it is full bodied, with black cherry, tobacco, black pepper, leather and I hate say it, tar. The tannins are well balanced but still show layers of complexity. A lovely elegant wine that should continue to develop over the next 7-10 years. An absolute lovely example of a well made Aglianico from Nativ.

Deep dark color, balsamic and eucalyptus and meaty on the nose. Spicy and full body on the palate. Perfect with spicy pasta. On its own astringent. #taurasi #italianwines — 7 years ago
