"Lightly chewy, this offers a rich palate of baked cherry, wood smoke, black licorice, forest floor and graphite notes, set on a supple frame. Finely balanced and subtle. Drink now through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases made."
Taurasi is an important, complex, and long aging wine that evolves and grows so surprising if you have the patience to wait. True born Aglianico, great structure and complexity, with few other big Italian reds, represents the great italian tradition of winemaking. Ideal for red meats and game, ripe or spicy cheeses. Thanks also to a very well refined and velvety tannins is superb with a rare grilled t-bone steak: tasty and tender.

About I Capitani
In Torre le Nocelle, a small little town in the heart of
Irpinia, there has been for over a century the Farm : "I
Capitani" belonging to the Cefalo family.
A small farm of about 12 hectares, today exclusively
cultivated with vineyard and olive grove.
The field, splendidly exposed, was formerly a game
reserve of the Prince of the Leonessa , Lord of
Montemiletto, and bought in the last twenties of
1800 by the grandfather Ciriaco, the founder of the
Farm ,who obstinately and sweating went on working
on the farm, changing the age-old woods in
Today Ciriaco, the grandson, has taken back the old
baton and animated with the same attachment and
tenacity of his grandfather, has brought back the
ancient Farm to its former splendor.
The Farm, through the production of prestigious
wines and high quality extra virgin olive oil have
the ambitious target to promote through Italy and all
over the world the image of Irpinia, a hard but
generous land full of traditions and culture.
