2008 Colli Di Lapio Clelia Romano Vigna Andrea Taurasi

"A rich, explosive wine, the 2008 Taurasi Vigna Andrea is endowed with superb depth and pure pedigree. Readers will have to be patient for the 2008, as today the wine remains remarkably primary and unevolved. With time in the glass, varietal aromas and flavors develop, adding complexity and nuance. The 2008 remains a large-scaled, vibrant wine with tons of promise. Super-ripe dark cherries, plums, smoke, bacon fat, tobacco, cedar, new leather and incense flesh out on a deep, baritone finish that is a marvel to behold. I can't wait to taste the 2008 with another few years of bottle age. This is another marvelous showing from Colli di Lapio." [+]
