The Best of Central and Southern Italy (Jun 2010)

The 2003 Taurasi Riserva is richer and deeper than the 2004 but lacks that wine’s delineation and clarity. Instead, readers will find a lovely roundness, plushness and overall sense of accessibility that make the 2003 absolutely delicious today. Hints of chocolate, worn-in leather and spices round out this tasty Taurasi.
