The 2011 Taurasi Riserva pulls you close and holds your attention firm with its deeply alluring bouquet of crushed black cherries plum sauce autumnal spices woodland herbs and hints of animal musk. This fills the palate with rich pliant textures and ripe red and blue berries as nervous acidity maintains wonderful freshness and sweet notes of cinnamon clove and tobacco form toward the close. There?s plenty of tannic grip here yet it?s balanced by the 2011?s mix of opulent concentrated fruit and contrasting sour citrus tones that resonate for what feels like a full minute. Even as you contemplate the experience minerals hints of iodine and rosy inner florals can still be sensed upon the palate. Make no mistake this is a full-throttle expression of Taurasi but it will win the hearts of collectors who enjoy a bigger and old-school style.
