Taurasi Naturalis Historia 2012

$125.00

AG: Vivid dark red. Red currant, sweet spices and an intense note of coconut on the nose. Richer and lusher than is usual for this wine, showing an almost chocolaty nuance to the sweet, sultry dark plum and red cherry fruit flavors. Finishes sweet, broad and pliant, but with a solid spine of tannins and harmonious acidity and repeating hints of coconut. Even better, this is completely devoid of the cooked aromas and flavors of many other 2012 Taurasis. WA : The 2012 Taurasi Naturalis Historia opens to an inky dark and impenetrable appearance. The team at Mastroberardino have nailed the style and the intended personality of this wine in what was a hot and not always even vintage. Careful work has been achieved here to craft a powerful wine that almost goes overboard but that ultimately never crosses the line into heaviness or flatness. It offers dried blackberry, cherry confit, spice, Teriyaki smoke and campfire ash.
