Ripe, sweet cherries, dried cranberries, cinnamon and Christmas spices. Medium-bodied and supple on the palate with smooth tannins and juicy, ripe berries. A lighter expression of Taurasi. A little more depth would take this to the next level. Drink now.

In the bottle with the burgundy-colored label, the Villa Matilde Avallone 2017 Taurasi Tenuta Pietrafusa was born in a scorching hot vintage but manages surprising elegance nonetheless with a pretty mineral tone of crushed stone that frames black cherry, plum and soft spice. The intensity of all those aromas balances out nicely. The finish is not too long, but that leanness works in favor of the wine’s food-friendly disposition.

The nose in the 2016 Taurasi Petrafusa is spicy and intense, showing crushed blackberries, laced with an orange citrus zest, crushed stone, hints of sage, and a lifting mintiness. On the palate, soft textures gain richness as they flow across the senses with notes of ripe black fruit, saline-minerals, and sweet herbal tones. The finish is long and structured, showing the tannic clout of the 2016 Taurasi Petrafusa, mixed with resonating acids and lingering dark fruits.

Moderately saturated bright red. Herbs, red fruit and minerals on the refined nose. Then also quite elegant in the mouth, where floral nuances lift the red and blue fruit flavors. Finishes long with herbal notes that add complexity.

Subtle and flavorful with spice, white-pepper and dark-berry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Firm tannins. Polished and delicious.
