Occasional Wine Note: Aglianico is considered the "Barolo of the South." It is ancient and considered one of the noble grapes. It's dark and big and tannic, but still quite drinkable. Taurasi is one of the 3 primary DOCGs for Aglianico and 1 of the 2 in Campania (the 3rd is in Basilicata). We still have yet to try an Aglianico we didn't like. Again, big but drinkable. This one is fits well into that descriptor. Enjoy one of the great wines of Campania!

    This is one of my favorite reds in this tasting of Campania wines. The Pietracupa 2015 Taurasi has terrific balance and a very long, silky texture that is not without power and freshness. You get tons of dark fruit here, with bright cherry, blackberry and kirsch, and earthy tones too, as well as pencil shavings and sweet spice from the oak. If you are looking at Taurasi for your next big red purchase, I highly recommend this standout bottle (in a production of 4,000 total bottles).
