Lovely ruby red color. On the nose, sensations of fruit: blackberry, plum and sour black cherry; a balsamic note, spices. The taste is soft, captivating, mineral and balanced with elegant tannins and a persistent finish.
Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2007 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine caresses the palate with serious intensity, depth and richness. Black cherries, plums, leather, licorice and spices flesh out as the 2007 opens up in the glass. This is a decidedly plush, fruit-driven style, but it works. There is more than enough fruit to stand up to the obvious yet well-balanced oak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (Feb 2013)
