This red wine is big, rich, has 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.
