Taurasi D.O.C.G.

Questo vino richiede un periodo di invecchiamento per esprimere appieno la sua complessità aromatica. Dopo almeno 3-5 anni di affinamento in bottiglia, seguita poi dalla maturazione in barriques di rovere francese per circa 18 mesi, il vino sviluppa una maturità eccellente, ma può continuare a migliorare con il passare degli anni.
