Villa Raiano Taurasi 2013

IVI005

Villa Raiano

A magnificent example of southern Italy's greatest red - rich, dense and complex yet suprisingly accessible. With fine tannins, plummy fruit and focused minerality, this strikes a perfect balance of rustic charm and urbane sophistication.

Production

The Aglianico grapes are souced from the Castelfranci vineyard. These guyot-trained vines were planted in 2004, in clay / chalk soils at an altitude of 500m. Typically harvested in early November, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with daily pumping over for 10-20 days. The wine is then matured in barrique and tonneau for 24 months.

Tasting notes

Spicy, smoky, and meaty notes on the nose, with hints of sour cherry. Intense and finely-tuned on the palate with layers of spicy black fruits, liquorice and dark chocolate. With ripe tannins, and dry, savoury and lightly rustic notes, yet has deceptive finesse. This should happily keep for 10-15 years but is perfectly accessible now.

Food match

Richly flavoured meats including salami, lamb and game.
