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 is a stunning coastal wine region of Italy, home to over a hundred native grape varietals and some of the finest soils and climatic conditions for viticulture on earth. The fine Mediterranean climate crossed with the mineral rich volcanic terroirs produces grapes of exceptional quality and flavor, and as such, Campania has been an important center for wine production for over three thousand years. As one might expect from such an ancient and esteemed wine region, tradition is highly important to the wineries which operate there. Careful attention is paid in order to bring the most representative flavors and aromas out of the grapes, and traditional, time honored techniques are still employed across the region when producing their many highly regarded wines.

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.
