Soft ruby red with delicate reflections and luminous transparency.

Wild berry, underbrush, tilled earth, leather and blue flower aromas shape the nose of this fragrant, stunning red. The newest Taurasi addition to the firm's already impressive line up, this is focused, terroir-driven and loaded with finesse. It delivers flavors of juicy wild cherry, crushed rasperry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco, framed in lithe, polished tannins and fresh acidity. While already enjoyable, it will also age well for years. Drink through 2030.

The 2015 Taurasi Stilema is dark and animal in nature, flaunting its crushed blackberry, tobacco, savory exotic spices, ashen earth and musky herbal tones. It's unexpectedly cool-toned and precise, with polished black fruits that envelope its burly Aglianico acidity. Notes of licorice and minerals give way to fine tannins, reminding me that this is an incredibly young Taurasi. Piero Mastroberardino seeks with this bottling to recreate a style that he remembers from his childhood, one which favors earth and spice over fruit, and demonstrates a transparency of Aglianico. I must say that it's quite impressive, as it is quite an achievement to produce such an elegant wine in the 2015 vintage at only 13% abv. Bravo.

This medium- to full-bodied red is abundantly aromatic, offering bay leaf, orange zest and crushed pink peppercorn accents that are enmeshed with flavors of ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit. Defined by a spine of mouthwatering acidity and trim tannins, this is sleek and focused through to the minerally finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 800 cases made, 75 cases imported.
