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.
