 Wine Spectator 92 points (Jun 30 2013)
A rich yet well-cut red, with bright acidity and fine tannins backing pure blackberry, cassis, briar and tar notes. The long finish opens up with hints of savory herb and earth. Best from 2014 through 2022. 165 cases made.-NW
 Vinous 90 points (Mar 2014)
Saturated medium red. Soil-driven aromas of red cherry, fresh herbs, coffee and smoky minerals. Supple on entry, then brighter in the mid-palate, with juicy acidity framing and lifting the red cherry, mineral and floral flavors. The long finish features an almost iodiney saline quality and suave tannins. This struck me as the best wine in the Donnachiara line-up this year, and it’s noticeably deeper and more complex than the basic 2008 Taurasi.

Other text
Irpinia land owes its character to its unusual microclimate thermic excursions between night and day wich is ideal for the cultivation of the great Irpinia wines; that is why it gives a good point of maturation without alterating the sugar levels

Food pairing
Pasta with full body sauces, steak, game (wild, deer, boar, etc.) and long aging cheese
