Antica Hirpinia Taurasi

Wine Description

The story began in 1959 with the foundation of the first winery in Taurasi. Today, Antica Hirpinia is a private cellar, led by a group of friends who took over it in 2016 to realize a common dream: to produce the finest wines in the area. Their first step was to appoint Riccardo Cotarella as their enologist and Valeria Cesari as their consultant.

Tasting Notes

Elegant, strong, with perfect body and big shoulders. On the nose it is powerful, rich of ripe, and pulpy red fruits, immediately followed by dark spices like cloves and coffee. The long flowery finish is guaranteed.

Food Pairings

Braised meat, chops, roasts, and wild game.
