Società Agricola Nativ Irpinia Campi Taurasini Eremo San Quirico 2010
For those of you who are interested in unbridled opulence, the Nativ ‘Eremo San Quirico’ Aglianico Irpinia Campi Taurasini 2010 might be the wine for you. The nose fairly explodes with roasted cherries, plums, milk chocolate and vanilla, topped by a whiff of smoke and spice. There is some heft and power here, but it’s almost entirely subdued by the more hedonistic elements of this Italian bombshell. Sultry overtones of figs, blackberries, and surprisingly, creme de menthe followed by cracked black pepper.
