Campi Taurasini, made of 100% Aglianico, is a Relatively new sub-appellation of Irpinia DOC of central Campania and can be considered a kind of younger brother of Taurasi, one with a more spirited and approachable personality. Taurasi is meant to be structured, ageworthy and almost austere in its youth. It is sometimes called "The Barolo of The South". Irpinia Campi Taurasini wines are more likely to be elegant and capable of moderate aging, but also drinkable when young. After a few years in the bottle this Aglianico has beautifully evolved While keeping fresh and structured: saturated fruit aromas of black cherry, mulberry, and black plum are prevalent on the nose with more mature notes of orange peel, aniseed, tobacco , wild herbs, graphite, and leather emerging on the palate. The winemaker recommends this balanced wine with cured meat.
