TASTING NOTES

"The 2004 Taurasi Pago dei Fusi is a single-vineyard wine that has previously not been available in the US. Hopefully that will change, as this is a rock-star wine. The Pago dei Fusi shows a touch more depth and inner sweetness than the regular bottling, but without abandoning what is essentially a classic style. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco, licorice and incense are woven together in a fabric of superb richness. The finish is long, precise and exceptionally pure, with crystalline, mineral notes that add freshness. This site, which was once under water, is rich in marine deposits that confer a beautiful sense of vibrancy to the wine. The integration of the oak is superb. Readers will not want to miss this gem!"

"Showing some age, with hints of leather, tobacco and wild herb framing the dried wild berry fruit. Fine, dusty tannins are followed by an aftertaste of sweet spice. Drink now through 2016." Wine Spectator

"Good full ruby-purple. Very fresh, intense aromas of dark plum, violet, tobacco and loam. Then lighter on the palate than the rich nose suggests, but with good volume and depth to the floral and dark fruit flavors. Shows a distinctly old-school texture, with a leaner, more austere mouthfeel than the other Taurasi wines in the Terradora portfolio. But there's enough underlying structure to make this cellarworthy, and it certainly needs time to develop a little more flesh. Finishes long, with building but fine-grained tannins."
