    Winemaker's Notes:

    100% Aglianico Intense ruby red in color, with a full, complex and persistent bouquet of violet, berries and chocolate. Naturalis Historia Taurasi has an enveloping warmth, smooth and perfectly structured with a characteristic background of plum, bitter cherry, raspberry and strawberry jam. This wine pairs excellently with game and sophisticated meat courses, as well as highlyflavored, mature cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2003 Taurasi Naturalis Historia is a relatively recent addition to the line-up made from 40-year old vines in the Mirabella vineyard. The Naturalis Historia is a big, opulent wine that reveals tons of varietal character, but with a more modern feel from the use of new French oak barrels. Scorched earth, game, spices, licorice and dark fruit all emerge from this sumptuous, elegant offering. The finish is long, sweet and pure. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2023.

    The Wine Advocate

    Naturalis Historia is an elegant and refined interpretation of Aglianico with pristine notes of black cherry, plum cake, spice, leather, tobacco and cola. It has a clean, polished feel with lingering mineral tones and softer tannins than your usual Taurasi. It comes in a beautifully embossed bottle that will also appeal to collectors.
