Wine Review Online: Taurasi Riserva DOCG Piano di Montevergine 2011 95 pts

Michael Apstein gives Feudi di San Gregorio, Taurasi Riserva DOCG (Campania, Italy) Piano di Montevergine 2011 95 points on WineReviewOnline.com

He notes that “ I hate to say that an almost $75 a bottle of wine is a bargain, but, if you have 75 bucks to spend on a wine, here it is.  Although Taurasi justifiably carries the DOCG accolade, it still lacks the prestige — and price — of the Tuscan or Piedmont DOCGs.  The Aglianico grape grown in Taurasi can, in the right hands, produce monumental wines, such as this one.  Tarry and mineral-y, with dark fruit profile, this full-bodied wine is still tightly wound, even at 6 years of age.  The tannins are apparent and firm, but not aggressive or angular.  This is a long and refined youthful wine that will reward another decade of cellaring.  If that’s not your plan, open and decant it several hours before serving and then watch it unfold in the glass. 95″ Michael Apstein Nov 7, 2017
