The Taurasi D.O.C.G. of Tenuta del Meriggio
Classification: Red aging wine
Selection of grapes from own estate vineyards located in Montemiletto at 550 metres above sea level
This wine is characterised by the selection of aglianico grapes, from the highest part of the own estate vineyard facing South – East on the hills of the Passo della Serra of Montemiletto. It is a wine of great structure supported by an adequate freshness that makes it particularly durable and which over the years gives an important olfactory and gustatory potential.
After a long maceration with the skins, the wine matures for 24/36 months in large oak barrels and then in bottles for at least a year before release.
Deep ruby red colour tending to garnet; fine and intense fragrance with hints of wild berries, spices, cherries and plums; engaging and elegant long persistence taste with scents of plum and cherry, black pepper and liquorice.
