“A medium-to full-bodied red with layers of black tea, blackberry, ash, clove and leather. Dark chocolate, too. Fine, integrated tannins and a savory yet juicy finish. Some bark at the end with ginseng. Drink or hold.”

“The 2014 Renonno Taurasi is remarkably fresh and vibrant in the glass, showing crushed black raspberries, offset by zesty spices and citrus, with white smoke and hints of animal musk. It floods the palate with silky textures, hosting cool-toned fruits and minerals, riding a core of brisk acids, as rounded tannins slowly saturate. The finish is long and structured yet still pleasurable today, resonating on tart wild berries under an air of purple-tinged florals.”

"Salvatore Molettieri and his son, Giovanni, make bold wines that capture the richness and power of Aglianico. The estate is located in Montemarano, long regarded as one of the most prestigious zones for Aglianico...Today, Molettieri is regarded as one of the top producers of Taurasi." - - - Vinous Media
