Ducale Taurasi DOCG

£20.00

Taurasi DOCG known as the “The Barolo of the South” for its similarities with the great Barolo’s of Piemonte. The vineyard, in the hills near the town of Taurasi, is just an hour’s drive from the beautiful Amalfi coast. The wine is made from 100% Aglianico grapes, fermented in steel and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. It’s a dark, full bodied red with an aroma of black cherries and vanilla that continue on the palate with a hint of spice. It has a good tannic structure that will develop over the next 3 to 5 years. Drink with red meat and cheese.
