2008 Salvatore Molettieri "Vigna Cinque Querce" Taurasi

SKU #1559488 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby with an amber rim. Brooding coffee and cocoa nuances complicate rich dark cherry and blackberry syrup on the nose. Large-scaled, dense and juicy, showing tactile flavors of dark berries and chocolate complemented by a note of underbrush. This long, smoothly tannic wine pulls off the neat trick of being a behemoth while staying light on its feet. Still, it needs a lot of time to show its best. (ID) 94+ Inner quote mark (9/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Elegant and toned, the 2008 Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce is a true gentleman among the unruly group of personalities that make up the Taurasi appellation. This is a standout expression that delivers an enormous sense of balance that is difficult to achieve with a grape that puts so much emphasis on tannins and structure. You get firmness at the back, but Cinque Querce is also supple and smooth in texture. The wine shows great length and purity. If you love Aglianico, don't miss this wine. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A finely honed red, with dense, sculpted tannins and a rich, smoky undertow. Flavors of black raspberry pâte de fruit, crème de cassis, grilled herb, beefsteak and ground black pepper are tightly knit now, but should open nicely with some air or age. (AN) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
