Cantine Guastaferro Taurasi “Primum” 2011
Full-bodied, powerful and nuanced wine that needs a little more bottle to match the 2008. A fraction less impressive than the Riserva, but with perhaps a longer life ahead of it.
Wine Enthusiast: “Subtle aromas of underbrush, leather, blue flower, mature black-skinned fruit and ground pepper slowly emerge on this powerfully structured wine. The brooding palate delivers black cherry steeped in spirits, crushed raspberry, clove and licorice framed against tightly knit but ripe tannins. It’s still austere and will benefit with more cellaring.”
Ian d’Agatha:“Best Italian full-bodied red wine of the year: As much as I love the three “B’s” of Italian wine (Barolo, Barbaresco and Brunello) my vote goes to the 2010 Guastaferro Taurasi Primum, a heady mix of ripe red fruit, tar and licorice aromas and flavors with some age on them.”
