Why we love it
The Taurasi is a red wine named after the village of Taurasi in the province of Avellino, Campania, often referred to as the Barolo of the south for its structure and complexity and made with Aglianico grapes grown in the DOCG area covering a few villages.
If the Taurasi before being released must be aged for a least 3 years, of at least one in wood, the Taurasi Riserva must be aged for a least 4.
This Taurasi riserva is big, bold, rich, with an impressive and complex nose with plenty of spices. On the palate is elegant, with firm tannins, lively, to be enjoyed on its own or with very rich dishes such as game, truffles and very mature cheeses.
The artisan who made it
The La Molara winery was founded at the beginning of the century by a group of four friends who are very passionate about wine. Led by Riccardo Morelli, they initially bought only a few hectares of vineyards and decided to buy in the heart of the DOCG area Taurasi, in Campania, where they produce the typical Campania wines, from Aglianico to Taurasi and from Greco di Tufo to Fiano di Avellino.
