About the wine
Situated at the base of Mount Faliesi, Fratelli Urciuolo shares its home with many of Italy’s oldest grapevines. With a legacy in Southern Italy that dates back to the Phoenicians, their Taurasi is the ultimate expression of Humanity’s favorite grape--at once powerful and elegant, Fratelli Urciuolo is keeping Southern Italy’s tradition alive.
A tangle of foothills and valleys, the Taurasi appellation is characterized by volcanic soils and warm temperatures that yield massive wines with incredible concentration and longevity that rivals Barolo and Brunello. Made 100% from the Aglianico grape, Taurasi is designed for long cellar aging to allow its forceful tannins to mellow into sheer elegance. Aged for a full four years before release, the multi-generational prowess cultivated by Fratelli Urciuolo is at its best in this bottle--get it while you can!

"Delicious and well structured, Smokey, with still present grippy tannins and likely a long life ahead of it."

"A simply fantastic expression of Aglianico, this opens with alluring aromas of underbrush, ripe black-skinned fruit, leather, tilled earth and dark spice that carry over to the delicious full-bodied palate. Firm velvety tannins and fresh acidity balance the juicy fruit flavors. It's already extremely tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2020–2031."
