Professional Wine Reviews for S. Molettieri Taurasi Riserva 2005

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 2005 Taurasi Riserva Vigna Cinque Querce is made in a super-ripe style. As impressive as the wine’s concentration is, frankly I find it hard to justify the premium the Riserva commands over the regular bottling. Readers in search of seamless opulence will find much to admire here. Sadly, much of the varietal character seems to have taken a back seat to the search for size and textural richness. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
Ripe, with cocoa-accented sun-dried blackberry, plum skin and black currant flavors slowly opening up to show layers of vanilla, ash and peppercorn. The fine tannins are well-integrated, with fruit and spice notes lingering on the long finish. Drink now through 2020. 233 cases made.

Winery S. Molettieri

Region: Campania

Campania may well be Italy's oldest wine region, with a history which spans over three thousand years and has endured throughout the rising and falling of empires. Today, the region's wine industry is as strong as ever, and consistently producing excellent wines of character and distinction, thanks to the dedication the wineries of Campania have for quality over quantity, and the love they have for their traditions and time honored practices. Of course, the region is helped enormously by the ideal climatic conditions it receives on the west coast of Italy, and the fact that the soils of Campania could be amongst the finest on earth for viticulture. For thousands of years, Campania has been the beating heart of the Italian wine industry, and this is one thing which is unlikely to change any time soon.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
