Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: The wine represent the primum movens of the Farm "I Capitani" junction between past & present, the real soul of the Farm. And the soul is all in the Taurasi "Bosco Faiano", wine of excellent structure, obtained from the vintage of selected grapes of the Aglianico Taurasi grapevines. Color: Deep burgundy with sparkling shades of red. Fragrance: Ethereal, complex, with notes of licorice & vanilla against a refined background of berries & black cherries. Tertiary features are well highlighted, pleasantly balsamic with pink pepper & intense & complex exotic spices. Flavor: Full bodied. Dry, rounded, harmonic, with an intense & persistent aftertaste, reminiscent of sour black cherries & berries. Complex, long-lasting & all embracing. Food matches & suggestions: Taurasi is an important, complex, & long aging wine that evolves & grows so surprising if you have the patience to wait. True born Aglianico, great structure & complexity, with few other big Italian reds, represents the great italian tradition of winemaking. Ideal for red meats & game, ripe or spicy cheeses. Thanks also to a very well refined velvety tannins is superb with a rare grilled t-bone steak: tasty & tender.
