Vesevo Taurasi DOCG 2009

£26.99

    TASTING NOTE

    Bright deep red. An intense and complex wine with red berry flavours and faint notes of vanilla. The tannins are firm and smooth, while the structure is clean and dry on the finish.

    The vineyards are situated at between 450 and 550 metres above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character. Indeed, the name Vesevo is the old name for Vesuvius. Fruit for this wine was sourced from five hectares of vineyard. 

    The flavours obtained in the vineyard are then preserved in the winery. The grapes were de-stemmed and gently crushed. Maceration took place for 20-25 days at a temperature of 26-28°C. The wine was barrel aged for 16 months.
